For Seal Design As Promotional Stunt 

"The Spirit of a Christian College" has been chosen as the theme 
for Religious Emphasis Week, March 8-11. This was announced by Joseph 
H. Yeakel, who is the Student Chairman, and has been working diligent- 
ly since the beginning of the year with Mr. Gockley, to the organization

It was announced at this meeting 
that an extensive program had 
been outlined, but that in all prob- 
ability, it would be revised in the 
near future. This program includes 
sub-themes for each day: Monday 
—"The Academic Spirit of a Chris- 
tian College;" Tuesday — "The So- 
cial Spirit of a Christian College;" 
Wednesday— "The Religious Spirit 
of a Christian College;" Thursday 
— "The Challenge of a Christian 
College." He also told the commit- 
tees that the speakers who would 
shoulder the main burden for the 
week had been chosen, but he 
pointed out that the success or fail- 
ure of the week lay in the hands 
of the committees— that they were 
the ones who could make or break 

To bring Religious Emphasis 
Week more to the front, the Reli- 
gious Coordinating Council, the 
sponsor and backer of Religious 
Emphasis Week, announced a con- 
test to be held for the purpose of 
obtaining a seal for the group. This 
contest opened on Thursday, Janu- 
ary 15, after 11:00 o'clock, and is 
open to all on campus. The seal 
must be original, containing a reli- 
gious theme, and it must be turned 
in to Mr. Gockley's office, Room 209, 
in Washington Hall, not later than 
February 5. It is desired that the 
idea be done in a rough sketch and 
contain the name of the individual. 
This seal is to be used for all publi- 
cations of the Religious Coordinat- 
ing Council and for all printed ma- 
terial used during Religious Em- 
phasis Week. Due to the nature of 
the organization which is sponsor- 
ing the contest, there will be no 
reward or prize, but the winner will 
have his name published in LA VIE, 
and a note will be included on the 
program for Religious Emphasis 
Week, stating the name of the win-

Miss Mary Gillespie 
Represents School 
At Meeting Of NASM 

Miss Mary E. Gillespie represent- 
ed the school at the 23rd annual 
meeting of the National Association 
of Schools of Music held recently 
at the Hotel Statler, Boston, Massa- 
chusetts. Highlight of the conven- 
tion was an address by Dr. Howard 
Hanson, Director of the Eastman 
School of Music, in which he made 
a plea for a return of the creative 
approach to the arts. 

Harry H. Pierson, consultant 
from the Institute of International 
Education in New York, addressed 
the convention on the topic of "The 
Exchange Student's Program in the 
Light of Recent Legislation." At the 
present time, 16,000 to 18,000 for- 
eign students are studying abroad. 
Russia has not responded to ad- 
vances in this respect and no bona 
fide American student, is in the 
Russian orbit, nor is a Russian ex- 
change student in an American col- 
lege. While only one out of every 
50 students is a musical student, 
many more applications for schol 
arships and fellowships are receiv- 
ed from foreign students than can 
be filled. 

The association is recognized by 
the American Counsel of Education 
as the only accrediting agency for 
schools of music in the United 
States. Its membership consists of 
more than one hundred and seven- 
ty of the foremost colleges, univer-

Delphian Society 
Holds Birthday Party 

Most Original Skit 
Awarded Box Of Candy 

Following a brief business meet- 
ing on January 6, the girls in Del- 
phian Literary Society held a birth- 
day celebration for every member 
of the organization. Seated around 
appropriately decorated tables, 
each representing a month of the 
year, the members witnessed skits 
put on by each month's group. A 
prize, a box of candy, was awarded 
to May for having the most original 
presentation. Miss Pauline Sutton, 
Miss Ann Becker and Miss Doris 
Sponaugle were the judges. 

The tables were cleverly decorated 
by Doris Eckert, Ethel Mae Beam, 
Annette Read, and Pat Riihiluoma. 
January's theme was a March of 
Dimes arranged around a picture 
of President Roosevelt with New 
Year's bells for favors. February 
displayed pictures of Washington 
and Lincoln and also had a Valen- 
tine motif. March's table was gay 
with the green of St. Pat, while 
April went in for the traditional 
showers. May's table looked like a 
miniature edition of the Lebanon 
Valley Campus on May Day as tiny 
dancers appeared to cavort around 
a be-ribboned pole. 

The spirit of '76 lent July a fes- 
tive air. School supplies and all 
day suckers provided amusement 
for September, while October, No- 
vember, and December had Hallow- 
e'en, Thanksgiving and Christmas 
themes respectively.

Have you noticed the big, broad 
grin illuminating the countenance 
of Uncle Joe Stalin these days? No 
cynical grin this, nor is its etiology 
traceable to a mirthful source. 
Uncle Joe is just plain happy, and 
the Politboro and the U. S. Com- 
mies are happy with him. The rea- 
son for Uncle Joe's pleasant state 
of mind: he has his radio tuned to 
the American wave length where 
he can listen to all of the standard 
news broadcasts, thus securing all 
the information that his agents are 
unable to obtain. The news that 
Uncle Joe has been hearing is of 
the type to make any dyed-in-the- 
red Bolshevik kasatsky for joy. 

Through the medium of the Am- 
erican news broadcasts, Uncle Joe 
has learned that the American 
corn and grain harvests are far 
from being large enough to answer 
the demands of both Europe and 
America, and that conservancy to 
the point of sacrifice must be prac- 
ticed in America if Europe is to be 
carried through the winter. 
These same reports indicate 
that all America is behind the 
movement to sacrifice to help feed 
Europe, as long as that sacrifice 
does not impinge the prosperity of 
some particular group. When this 
happens (as some of the proposed 
measures already have) the brew- 
ers, meat packers, and retail gro- 
cer associations, the labor groups, 
and the manufacturers squint 
down their sights and let go with, 
"impractical," "straws in the wind," 
"a fatal blow to our national econ- 
omy." Yes, Uncle Joe is looking 
mighty happy these days.

this column. It's called "How to 
Succeed in School," or "Is 20|20 
Good Enough for You?" One brill- 
iant idea is to let the fingernails 
grow until they are at least three 
inches long. The night before the 
test, make all necessary notes on 
the back of the fingernails. If the 
instructor suspects something, 
feign nervousness and quickly bite 
off the fingernails. The only draw- 
back to this system is that to make 
the three-inch nails inconspicuous, 
it is essential that the student dis-

is impractical, the latter dangerous.

Dear Editor: 

In your December 18 issue of LA 
VIE, you carried four columns of 
type headed "Football Season Re- 
sume." This article went step by 
step through the campaign of last 
fall, with but one execption. There 
was no mention made of the Juni- 
ata game. 

This, while naturally hurtful to 
an Indian's ego, is, in the judgment 
of the staff of the Juniatian, poor 
journalistic taste, as well as undue 
partiality in reporting events. I can 
assure you, the Dutchmen's recent 
48-41 victory on the basketball 
court was faithfully recorded for all 
to see on the sports page of the 

Since the sports department of 
LA VIE is evidently unaware of the 
facts of the game, I will take the 
liberty of providing a few. 

The first quarter of the contest 
was little more than a sounding out 
by both sides. Lebanon Valley, find- 
ing itself on the J. C. 24, and stall- 
ed, called for a field goal by Walt 
Gage. The attempt was low. Later, 
i the second quarter, Juniata at- 
tempted one from the same posi- 
tion, Dzvonar kicking, which went 
wide of the mark. Scoring was 
started by Mike Dzvonar, which 
went wide of the mark. Scoring was 
started by Mike Dzvonar, Juniata 
Halfback, as he went over from the 
three, and then booted the extra 
point. Bob Hess, Valley halfback 
(who incidentally was voted by the 
squad to Juniata's all opponent 
team) provided the only score of 
the game for the Dutchmen as he 
took a pass on the J. C. 45 from 
Eckenroth, and eluded tacklers the 
whole way to pay dirt. Gage at- 
tempted and missed the extra 

At the seven minute mark of the 
third quarter, J. C. added another, 
as reserve halfback Wasco Berzen- 
sky in three successive plays from 
the 17, all around and through the 
right side of the line, scored. Dzvo- 
nar kicked the extra point. The 
final score came deep in the last 
quarter as Wofflnlin, fullback, pass- 
ed to Smith in the end zone for a 
td. Dzvonar had two attempts at 
the uprights, the second awarded 
for an offsides penalty, and missed 
both. Thus ended the first Juniata 
defeat of a Lebanon Valley football

Dear Editor: 

Attention to the Student Body 
and Faculty: 

I am writing this letter to bring 
this really and truly ever present 
fact of the thoughtfulness, cooper- 
ation, and generosity of the fellows 
on our campus to all readers of LA 

Although similar experiences 
have happened to you on or off the 
campus, I wish to bring to the fore- 
ground one such experience. Never 
was I so touched with any of my 
previous experiences as was I with 
the aftermath of the Jr. Sr. - Soph 
football game. My broken tooth 
seemed more a concern to the fel- 
lows playing the game then did the 
actual score of the game. To com- 
pensate for my loss, a group of the 
fellows kindly contributed to make 
up for the loss. This one experience 
has far surpassed any other ones 
that I have had in the service or 
any other time, and it is just one 
example of the stuff that a college 
man is made. 

In closing this letter, I also wish 
to sincerely thank all who were so 
considerate of me at a time of need. 


The Campus Is Talking About . . . 

"S' WONDERFUL"— Isn't it? to get back to the good old grind of 

breakfast at 7, rush to 8 o'clocks, worry about exams, study, study 
ho, hum. . . .after all, who would want to continue living as we did af 
home over the holidays. . . .Why, we'd just be a bunch of old softi e i 
"LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, ETC."— Yep, all those jokers who insist^ 
upon "dreaming of a White Christmas" finally got their wish, p ro ^ 
ably to their undying sorrow! Especially folks like "Gerry" McR eri ~ 

na, the Fiorellos, Fred Manheck, Al Moriconi, to mention a few of 


students who hail from N. Y. and N. quote Caroiy n 
Boeddinghaus : — "Frank and I shovelled snow even while it 
snowing; if we'd waited until it stopped, we couldn't even have looij 
ed out of the windows!" Back home here, several of our day students 
reported: . . . .Nancy Meyer — "We had no electricity for several day s 
and had to cook our meals with a blow torch! Nan Urich — "We re 

sorted to cooking with old kerosene lamps phooey on the "g 0od 

old days" Numerous others, deprived of all modern conveniences 

for a few days, confessed that perhaps all that snow would have 
been much more romantic if confined strictly to poetry and song! 

A BREAK AND A MAKE— M. C. Salzman and Bob Miller have "hit the 

Road" different roads!!! while Annette Read and Dick Knies 

after separation, are affecting a reconciliation. 

BEWILDERED — That's what we are about C. Pomraning and B. Frank- 
Sarah Zellers and Earl Williams, but that's what Bill Moore is about 
the teaching profession and running the Legion with classes sand- 
wiched in for variety. 

"LOVE'S OLD SWEET SONG"— That wee, but most important fellow 
Dan Cupid, gave Santa plenty of assistance over the holidays, if the 
engagement-announcement and wedding-bell columns are any indi- 
cation .... heartiest congratulations to: newly-engaged Marty Ross 
and John Swope, Mary Louise Jagnow and Frank Hockley, Marian 
Geib and Jim Wilhelm. 

"GOOD NEWS" — What a pleasant and most welcome surprise to find 
that the well-worn staircase of the "Ad" building (they were literal- 
ly "in the groove") had been replaced with new, broad steps; also 
that at last the much-wished-for new lights had been installed in 
several rooms and in the halls — even though the face lifting process 
does involve a bit of noise and re-routing, the finished product will 
be well worth it. 

"BLUE SKIES"— Will be the theme-song for all students, after the big, 
black cloud of Final Exams has safely passed, and we can all relax 
that is, until the next ones come along. 

New Faces On Faculty Row 


The Rev. Bruce C. Souders, In- 
structor in English, was born in 
Richland, Pennsylvania — that 
much is certain — but there is a 
wide divergence of opinion con- 
cerning the date. According to the 
Department of Vital Statistics, Mr. 
Souders was born December 20, 
1920. His mother (and she ought 
to know) says Mr. Souders tells 
him it was December 27 of the 
same year. His own guess: Christ- 
mas day, 1920. 

Not noticeably affected by the 
uncertainty of his birth date, Mr. 
Souders attended the Myerstown, 
Penna., grade schools with other 
children who had no such cross to 
bear. He graduated from Lebanon 
High School in 1939, where he de- 
voted much of his time to music, 
both vocal and instrumental. 

Mr. Souders entered Lebanon 
Valley College immediately follow- 
ing high school graduation, and 
grduated in 1944. While here as a 
student he was a member of the 
Green Blotter Club, LA VIE staff, 
and the Quittie staff. 

He then entered the Bonebrake 
Theological Seminary, Dayton, O.,

putchmen To Meet Scranton U. 
Next Week On Scranton Court 

Purple and White Averages Over 6 Feet 
Will Be Out To Avenge Football Defeat 

Taking to the road next Saturday night, January 24, the Blue and 
White Cagers of Lebanon Valley oppose the Purple and White of 
Scranton University. At first glance, the record of the Royals does not 
appear impressive and is not. After winning their initial game against 
Connecticut State Teachers' College, they have dropped eight in a 
r0 w. Moreover, they were outscored 
by large margins in all but two of 
these games. 

However, Coach Mease is expect- 
ing a great struggle for several rea- 
sons. One, all the quints that have 
engaged the Royals thusfar are out 
f the class of the Valleymen; two, 
the Scranton boys remember the 
beating handed them by the Flying 
Dutchmen and are out for revenge; 
and three, the Miners are playing 
a 27-game schedule. The ambitious 
schedule shows that they have a 
better team than they have evi- 
denced thus far, and the law of av- 
erages should begin working for 
them. After this paper goes to 
press, Scranton takes on LaSalle, 
Seton Hall, Manhattan, Loyola of 
Baltimore, and Albright in succes- 
sion within the eight days preced- 
ing their tilt with the Dutchmen. 

Outstanding among the Royals 
are: Guard Mike Denoia, who re- 
cently held big Jim Lacy of Loyola, 
second-highest scorer in the nation 
last year, to one field goal and two 
free throws. Mike was also second- 
highest scorer in the first seven 
games, and last year led his team 
in scoring with 280 points. 

Pete Medvecky, a freshman 
guard, is another Royal mainstay. 
A brilliant set-shot artist, his dead- 
ly eye has netted 63 points in the 
first seven contests to lead his team 

Center Tom Notchik has 32 
points in six games, and last year 
totaled 200. Bill Griglock, another 
guard, has been hampered with in- 
juries this season, but scored 207 
points a year ago. Henry Kolo- 
jeski guard, and Pat McGeehan and 
John Barthowski, forwards, are 
other highly-regarded men in the 
Scranton aggregation. 

In the all-important matter of 
height, the Royals average 6' 1" 
with nine men of a thirteen-man 
squad extending over the six-foot

Sensational LaSalle 
Five Hands Blue And 
White 77-43 Setback 

La Salle College, city champions 
of Philadelphia, recent victor over 
last year's National Invitation 
champion — Utah, and one of the 
leading basketball powers of the 
nation, almost swept Lebanon Val- 
ley off the Lebanon High floor on 
Dec. 18 as they downed the Duch- 
men 77-43. 

The Explorers played one of the 
greatest games ever seen on the 
Lebanon boards as they ran, pass- 
ed, and shot with unerring accu- 
racy to hand the Valley their first 
defeat of the season. 

However, the Dutchmen need not 
be dejected over this defeat. They 
were an outclassed team from the 
opening whistle as La Salle dumped 
in 9 points before the Valley could 
tally. The Philly flyers gave some 
2,500 spectators basketball at its 
best. Playing firehouse style, the 
Explorers burnt up the boards as 
they raced up and down the court 
to drop in 2-pointers in precision 
like style. 

Basketball tongues are still wag- 
ging in this section because La 
Salle apparently has one of the 
best teams in the east, if not the 
best. As for the Dutchmen, they 
put up a gallant though helpless 
fight against terrific odds. Charley 
McGlone's Explorers had too much 
height and experience for the 
Measemen to cope with. They con- 
trolled both back-boards and block- 
ed many shots the Valley threw up 
from the inside. 

The game took on an ominous 
note from the first minute of play. 
The favored Philly five jumped in- 
to a 22-6 first-quarter lead and 
continued to dominate play thru- 
out the game, though L. V., largely 
through the efforts of Pete Gam- 
ber, did manage to out-score the 
visitors by one point in the final 
period. Floyd Becker was high man 
for the Dutchmen with 10 points. 
Marsh Gemberling also contributed 
9 markers to the losing cause. 

Coach Ralph Mease's basketeers 
met with probably the most dis- 
heartening defeat of the season on 
Dec. 20 at Easton when they drop- 
ped a heart-breaking 38-36 defeat 
to Lafayette in the final 70 seconds 
of play. The game, the lowest scor- 
ing contest the Dutchmen have 
played to date, was to all intents 
and purposes "in the bag" for the 
Valley at the start of the final per- 
iod, but the Leopards held the 
Dutchmen to a meager 5 points 
while scoring 13 to cop the contest. 

For the Dutchmen, who held the 
upper hand for most of the going, 
the Lafayette defeat was a bitter 
pill to swallow. A victory would 
have meant added prestige to the 
Dutchmen; as things now stand it's 
just a blot on an otherwise near 
perfect record. 

L. V. had a 6 point, 31-25 lead go- 
ing into the last period and was 
well on the way to an upset victory, 
but that final session proved to be 
the Valley downfall. Lafayette put 
on the pressure and found the 
range for 13 points, the highest 
they scored in any quarter that ev- 
ening, as they held L. V. to its low- 
est scoring quarter of 5 points. 

Rinso Marquette was the individ- 
ual Valley star. He was high-scorer 
for the night with 16 points. Floyd 
Becker canned 8 points. In the way 
of team scoring, each squad tallied 
12 points by way of free throws. 
Lafayette outscored the Dutchmen 
from the field 13 field goals to 12, 
which meant the margin of vic-

Good Telephone Service 
at Low Cost 

Suppose we were buying apples — instead of tele- 
phone equipment — for the people of Pennsylvania. 

You would expect us to buy (a) good apples at (b) 
a favorable price. You wouldn't expect us to pay 10c 
per apple if three good apples could be bought for 
25c .. . or if 300 good apples could be bought for 

We are guided by this same principle in buying tele- 
phone equipment — wire and cable, switchboards and 
insulators, telephone instruments and dial mechanisms. 
We insist, above all, on good equipment, for only with 
good equipment can we provide good telephone serv- 
ice, and only with good equipment can costs be kept 
low. We seek a favorable price, for a favorable price 
also helps us to. keep your telephone bills down. 
That's why we do most of our buying through Western 
Electric, supply unit of the Bell System. We know that 
Western Electric equipment — and the equipment that 
Western Electric buys elsewhere — meets our stand- 
ards. And because Western Electric furnishes equip- 
ment in such large quantities to all operating com- 
panies within the Bell System, we can buy what we 
need at prices substantially lower than we would have 
to pay elsewhere for equipment of like quality. 
Good buying, in short, is simply one more reason why 
you have the best possible telephone service at the 
lowest possible cost. 




Valley Five Tops E<Town, 67-63 
To Snap 2<Game Losing Streak 

Flashy Floyd Becker Sparks Victory 
Dutchmen's Play At Times Erratic 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutch- 
men got back on the glory road last 
Saturday night when they register- 
ed a 67-63 victory over Elizabeth- 
town College to give L. V. a perfect 
slate of 2 wins against no defeats 
against E-town this '47-'48 cam- 
paign. It was a hard-fought, har- 
um-scarum game that bristled with 
action from start to finish. 

The contest, a nip-and-tuck af- 
fair, had a capacity crowd in a 
lather of excitement for most of 
the evening. The story of the game 
can be summarized in three words: 
Too much Becker. Fabulous Floyd 
was banging in 2-pointers from all 
angles and was especially proficient 
on sets from the right side. His 
deft shooting was a sight-to-see as 
he completely stole the spotlight 
from E-town's Frankie Keath. 
Frankie's showing against L. V. was 
hardly anything to swoon over. He 
scored 6 field goals and 4 fouls for 
16 points. During the game he took 
28 shots and made good only 6, 
which gives him an average of 
about 22%. 

At times the play of the Dutch- 
men was erratic and the effects of 
a 3 week layoff were clearly visible. 
But this could be expected, and in 
the final analysis the Valley just 
had too much for Elizabethtown as 
they matched everything E-town 
could offer, and then some. 

From the opening buzzer play 
was fast and rough. With Becker 
and DiJohnson leading the way, 
the Dutchmen equaled their hosts 
point for point and as the game 
went into intermission the Valley 
had a 3 point pull— 33-30. In the 
first half DiJohnson played terrific 
ball under the E-town basket as he 
faked opposing players out of their 
shoes to tally from under the bas- 
ket to keep L. V. out in front. 

Elizabethtown came back in the 
third quarter to out-score the Val- 
ley and the teams were deadlocked 
49 all at the start of the final per- 
iod. With Becker still spearheading 
the Valley offense, the Dutchmen 
pulled away to a 10 point lead mid- 
way in the session, but George 
Waltz, E-town guard, got a "hot- 
hand" and everything he tossed up 
was labeled "two points." However, 
all this was to no avail; for George 
soon cooled off and the Valley still 
held a slim lead. Content with this 
lead, the Measemen played come- 
and-get-it and employed a slow 
freeze to end the game for the 
third L. V. triumph against two de- 

Sports In Shorts 

Basketball is next on the agenda 
of sports for girls. The intra-mural 
round-robin tournament began on 
Tuesday, January 13. Each dorm 
has a representative team, and will 
compete with the teams from other 
dorms. This is a chance for all the 
girls who are unable to participate 
in intercollegiate basketball to get 
rid of some of that excess energy, 
so come on, all you "has-beens" and 
"shall-bees," come out and lead 
your dorm to victory. 

The schedule for the intramural 
games to be played in the college 
gym is as follows: 

January 12 — 7 P. M. 
February 18 — 7:30 P. M. 
February 25—7:30 P. M.

Only Three Veterans Back 
For Coach Sponaugle 

Cries of "cut for the basket" and 
"get off your feet" can be heard 
coming from the gym, as the girls' 
intercollegiate basketball season 
gets under way. Although only 
three members of last season's team 
have reported for practice, the sea- 
son should be a fairly successful 
one, for the old L. V. C. spirit is 
prominent among all the members 
of the team. 

The team this year has height, 
but lacks experience; however, 
plenty of team work, and the will 
to win should bring at least five 
victories from the 12 games sched- 
uled for this year. 

As a preview of the 1948 season, 
L. V. defeated Annville High by a 
score of 32-20, in a practice game 
played on January 12. 

On Wednesday, January 14, L. V. 
played their first game of the sea- 
son with its rival sister college — Al- 
bright. Last year the Dutchgirls 
sextet defeated the Albright lassies 
by a score of 22 to 21, and a vic- 
tory is expected for this season.

Radio Workship Airs 
First In Weekly Series 

Leading off with a fifteen-minute 
documentary drama entitled "Meet 
Lebanon Valley College," the Radio 
Workshop began its weekly series 
of broadcasts last Thursday morn- 
ing. Workshop members re-enact- 
ed the Church Conference meeting 
which founded Lebanon Valley, and 
gave a dramatized description of 
the college as it is today. The pro- 
gram was produced through the fa- 
cilities of WLBR in Lebanon, co- 
sponsor of the group. 

Marycarol Salzman directed the 
first program, which was written by 
George Ely. Included in the cast 
were: James Yeingst, Glenn Hall, 
Robert McCoy, Jeanne Bozarth, 
Richard Caler, and Joanne Kessler. 

According to a program schedule 
released last week, the Workshop 
will go on the air at 11:15 every 
Thursday morning during the re- 
mainder of the school year. Each 
broadcast will deal with a differ- 
ent aspect of campus life, with the 
exception of a program scheduled 
for today entitled "History in the 
Making in Lebanon County." Other 
programs will be based on such 
topics as Veterans in College, May 
Day, the Music Festival, College 
Dramatics, and Winter and Spring

gram on May 8. Professor George 
G. Struble has completed the story 
for the production, which is called 
"The Devil Was An American." 

Through the medium of the 
dance with some pantomime, the 
audience will follow the Devil and 
his imps thru adventures in three 
sections of America — In New Eng- 
land, the devil in the guise of a 
shyster lawyer will encounter Da- 
niel Webster. In the deep south, 
the devil, a slave trader, steps into 
the pages of Harriet Beecher 
Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin" to 
meet Uncle Tom himself and that 
notorious skinflint, Simon Legree.

The play, Night of January 16th, has been selected by the Delphian

with rehearsals already started, the production, scheduled for March 12. 

is now well under way, according to 

James Brulatour, who is directing

This is a play without a heroine

however, Jeanne Bozarth has been

part, that of Karen Andre, defend-

the play a hero, the principal male

AT a redent meeting of the Student-Faculty Council it was learned 
that this organization had no power to enforce its decisions. In an 
effort to obtain this power the Council has sent letters to the heads of 
campus organizations asking them to hold meetings to determine the 
opinions of their organizations and relay said opinions to the Council at 
its next meeting. The letter states: It is our opinion that the Student- 
Faculty Council should be a co-ordinating body for all campus organi- 
zations. They should not only have the authority to avoid conflicts of 
scheduled events, but also to direct student opinion through the proper 
channels so thath the entire campus may be properly co-ordinated to 
the satisfaction of the greater majority. This request, couched in inno- 
cent-sounding but high-handed terms, if granted, could have dangerous 

We agree that the Council should have authority to avoid conflict of 
scheduled events if all campus bodies are allowed to have representa- 
tives on the Council; however, college students are supposed to be mature 
enough to be able to formulate their own opinions without having to 
have them "directed." As it stand now, the Council is representative 
neither of the student body nor of the faculty, and to grant it authority 
to carry out its decisions would be to concentrate too much power in the 
hands of too small a group. Even if the group were enlarged by the addi 
tion of the organizations not now represented, it would still be easy for 
the members to form blocs to push action through. The members of the 
Council now appear to present their own opinions rather than those of 
the groups which they supposedly represent, and thus the "greater ma- 
jority" is not necessarily satisfied. As to the proper co-ordination of the 
campus — just what does this mean? The term could be amplified to 
cover a mulittude of sins. Besides which, each individual is sure to have 
a different idea of just what is "proper." 

We suggest that the Student-Faculty Council confine itself to the 
avoidance of conflict of scheduled events and that it act as a clearing- 
house for complaints of the students against the faculty and vice versa, 
rather than trying to run the whole campus. We suggest that it let the 
individual organizations solve the problems peculiar to their type of 
group and allow the students to form their own opinions. 

LV. Debating Club 
To Meet Lock Haven 

The L.V.C. debating club opens 
its season Friday and Saturday of 
this week with practice debates 
against Lock Haven State Teach- 
ers College. The Valley debaters will 
be debating both sides of the na- 
tional question, "Resolved that some 
form of World Government should 
be established." The debates should 
prove both interesting and inform- 
ative, and every one is invited to 
attend. The time and place of de- 
bate will be announced on Friday. 

On February 19th, the negative 
team of Juniata College will de- 
bate the Valley affirmative here, 
followed by a two-man team from 
Albright College on February 20. 
Other debates with Elizabethtown, 
Shippensburg, and Temple Univer- 
sity have been arranged for March.

Though most people are unier 
the impression that the football 
season has long since passed, there 
still seem to be a few matters that 
need to be cleared up concerning 
this past campaign. As the readers 
will no doubt recall, there appeared 
in the last issue of LA VIE a letter 
from Jesse Garber, Managing Edit- 
or of the Juniatian, student publi- 
cation of Juniata College, who in- 
quired about the "omission" of an 
account of the Juniata football 
game in the Football Resume pub- 
lished in the Xmas issue of LA VIE. 
His criticism was entirely justified, 
but I feel that most people are un- 
der the impression that the "omis- 
sion" of the game was intentional, 
which doesn't happen to be the 

I wrote a letter to Jesse and stat- 
ed my side of the story, which is 
this: The "omission" of the game 
was not the fault of myself or the 
LA VIE staff, but it was an error 
on the part of the printer. If you 
will read the story again closely 
and notice where an account of the 
Juniata game should be given you 
will find that the lead sentence be- 
gins thus: "The big let-down of the 
campaign came in one of the most 
dramatic upsets of this or any oth- 
er football season. "Following this 
my write-up continues to relate 
about the Scranton game which L. 
V. won. A lead sentence for win- 
ning our biggest game of the year 
wouldn't begin — The big let-down. 
This sentence was the beginning of 
my story on the Juniata game, 
which was somehow cut out, and 
the Scranton game was added un- 
der the sentence. 

This past week I received a letter 
from Jesse Garber, and it read in 
part: "I think your letter cleared 
up the situation. Believe me, we can 
appreciate your alibi! There is more 
friction between writers and print- 
ers than in-laws. Your write-up 
that you had intended was excel- 
lent. It would have satisfied any 
Indian rooter. The Dutchmen 
should realize that they were prob- 
ably the best scouted of any team 
on our schedule. Our coach, Bill 
Smaltz, former Penn State fullback, 
played three games in his career 
against Kerr-coached Colgate, and 
played for him in the Shrine game 
in 1941. We should know better 
than Smaltz what to expect from 
the patriarch. Make no mistake, 
though, we know the honeymoon 
is over and that next years' game 
will be entered with the Dutchmen 

I believe that this letter should 
end each and all discussions about 
football and wrap up any loose ends 
until next season. 


"Lab" Band 

(Continued from Page 1) 
this semester. The need for a sort 
of "laboratory" band in which the 
student arrangers could hear their 
work played was met with the for- 
mation of a seventeen-piece dance 
band within the group which is 
taking the course. Professor Sta- 
chow is the instructor of the ar- 
ranging class, for which two semes- 
ter-hours credit is given, as well 
as advisor to the dance band. 

Walt Levinsky, who was selected 
to serve as the "frontman" or lead- 
er gave a list of the band's person- 
nel as follows: 

Saxophones: Jack Snavely, Joe 
Dickerson, Karl Wolf, Paul Felty, 
Tony Gerace, and Russ Schneck. 

Trumpets: Lloyd Batdorff, Dick 
Murphy, Lloyd McCurdy, Bill 
Lemon, Ken Sampson, and Chet 
Richwine. , ,

May Day Program 

(Continued from Page 1) 

To the west, the devil comes as the 
gay gambler, and between Peter 
Cartwright — the saddle bag preach- 
er, and Annie Oakley he manages 
to have an exciting interlude. 

With music selected from Amer- 
ican composers by Professor Rut- 
ledge and choreography by Miss 
Doris Sponaugle, the program is a 
joint Y.W. - Y.M.C.A. project. 

The entrance to hell which will 
be seen on Lebanon Valley's cam- 
pus and the identifying death 
march at crucial moments during 
the episodes are but two of the 
unique experiences awaiting the 
spectators of this coming Annual 
May Day Program. 







Management, in the telephone business, is essentially a 
word. It defines the duties and responsibilities of telephone 
men and telephone women who have shown by their abil- 
ities that they can undertake them. 

Those who supervise the organizing, planning, financing* 
and directing of this business, in other words, are simply 
telephone employees at various stages in their careers. 

That's the way things are done in the telephone business. 
Any employee who shows the qualities of leadership will 
find that those qualities are hound to be recognize* I. 

This opportunity for advancement is a natural incentive 
to good work, but it is also your assurance of good telephone 
service at low cost. For the telephone business is complex* 
and the special skills and arts that are required to run i* 
are learned only on the firing line of experience. 

Tomorrow's leaders in this business are today working with 
and under the direction of yesterday's employees. 









































t. V.'s Pennant Chances Hinge on 
Outcome of Game at Albright 

Blue and White Five Face High Scoring Duo 
On Foreign Court; Have Dropped 3 to Lions 

Following two successive home games, the Flying Dutchmen travel 
t0 Reading on Saturday night to oppose the very formidable Albright 

This game is a "must" for the Valley if they hope to capture the 
pennant in the Western Division of the Middle Altantic Conference. Of 
necessity, .this writeup was written 

two days before the all-important 
LVC-Juniata and Moravian-Al- 
bright games, which may have a 
bearing on league standings. 

The Blue and White are out to 
stop the Lions. Including last year, 
the Dutchmen have dropped three 
straight games to them, and confi- 
dently expect to turn the tables at 

However, the Valley cagers will 
have their hands full in their effort 
to stop high-scoring Eddie Anlian 
and Ossie Kreibel. Between them 
they tallied 37 of the 49 points cag- 
ed by the Lions in their 49-47 con- 
quest of the Dutchmen just one 
month ago. Also to be watched is 
Gulden, a great set-shot artist. 

At first appearance, the Albright 
record does not appear to be any- 
thing to enthuse over, but a glance 
at the outstanding quintets they 
have opposed and battled on fairly 
even terms should make you realize 
that they have an outstanding ag- 
gregation. At present their record 
stands at 5 victories and 7 defeats 
in their over-all competition, but a 
3 and 1 record in league play. Re- 
cently they have defeated Mora- 
vian, 57-46, and lost to LaSalle, 68- 
30, and Seton Hall, 60-53. 

Interesting to watch will be the 
battle between Ray "Tiny" Kline 
and "Ossie" Kriebel, rival towering

or an average

With the Dutchmen 

We knew it couldn't last forever! 
When a team has lost four games 
by a total of only ten points, some- 
thing is bound to change. And 
change it did last Saturday! Hav- 
ing dropped four games out of five, 
the Dutchmen didn't let their ina- 
bility to hold a lead get them down. 
Their team spirit has been great 
and if they can get by Albright on 
Saturday, they could very well an- 
nex the Western Division crown. 
Winning only three of their first 
eight games, nothing except over- 
confidence and injuries should keep 
the Blue and White from a seven 
a nd one record in ther remaining 
eight games. 

Great tribute should be paid to 
Coach Ralph Mease for bringing his 
^en along as he has. l'e was well 
Phased with the shown.g of hi?

Greyhounds. Especially was he

The Valley has 
points as opposed 
nents' total of 481, 
of 36.7 points per 
points per game for their rivals. 

Valley foul shooting average 
stands at 57.5%, while their oppo- 
nents have sunk 54.3% of their free 
throw attempts. 

In closing, we want to pay tribute 
to Elizabethtown's Frankie Keith, 
who keeps on racking up the points 
and leading the state scorers by -i 
margin of about 75 points. His to- 
tal now is around 365 points. Frank 
is a great competitor and team 
player, but our opinion is that his 
title as scoring champion will be 
somewhat cheapened as a result of 
his team playing such teams as 
Gallandet College and Towson 
State Teachers twice each. Leba- 
non Valley, incidentally, twice held 
Keath to 16 points; his lowest point 
totals all season. 

Unnoticed through all this may 
have been the record that our Jay- 
Vees, under Coach Danny Seiver- 
ling, are piling up. Their record 
now stands at six wins and two 
losses. Outstanding on the squad 
are Larry Kinsella and Charley 
Zimmerman, who usually tally ap- 
proximately half of their team's to - 
tal. Both should be welcome addi - 
tions to Coach Mease next season. 

Anniversary Officers 
Elected By Kalo; 
Gloat Over Philo 

At the first meeting of the new 
semester elctions for the Kalo An- 
niversary Officers took place. Elec- 
tions were held under the direction 
of President Rinso Marquette. The 
anniversary officers elected were: 
President, Karl Miller; and Vice 
President, Benny Penturelli. By 
unanimous action, Kalo members 
reinstated the "scribe" and the 
"money grabber" at their old jobs. 
Because of Dick Moller's love being 
on campus and not necessitating 
letter wiriting, it was thot he could 
adequately fulfill the position. Also 
Bill Keeler, holder of Kalo's large 
fortune, has plans for a new Buick. 

Once again the plans for the An- 
niversary Dance were battled back 
and forth. After a bloody battle, 
the final decision proclaimed the 
Hotel Hershey's Spanish Room as 
the scene with the characters ex- 
clusively attired in formal evening 
dress. The meeting adjourned af - 
ter once again rejoicing over Phikfs 
inability to uphold Kalo's challenge.

Religious Emphasis Week 

(Continued from Page 1) 

Contributing Editor of the Chris- 
tian Endeavor World, and man> 
other religious periodicals, is also 
listed on the agenda. In addition to 
having an impressive list of colleges 
and occupational experiences be- 
hind him, Dr. Veh has written sev - 
eral books, among which are: 
Thumbnail Sketches of Evangelical 
Bishops Sketched on Bishop's 
Thumbnails, Interesting Evangeli- 
cal Churches, and Spiritual Re- 
sources for Youth in the Pre-Eas- 
ter Season. Dr. Veh was also a rep- 
resentative of the Evangelical 
Church at the First World Confer- 
ence of Christian Youth at Amster- 
dam, Holland, in 1939. 

The third speaker to be public- 
ized this week is Professor Forrest 
H. Kirkpatrick, Dean of students 
and Professor at Bethany College, 
also personnel management con- 
sultant for industrial and business 
organizations. Professor Kirkpat- 
rick is active in the literary field as 
a contributor to many professional 
ar.d technical journals, and was 
listed in "Leaders in Education 
(1941)" and "Who's Who in Com- 
merce and Industry (1947)." The 
campus ex-GI's will be interested 
to learn that Professor Kirkpatrick 
was technical consultant for the 
War Manpower Commission (1943- 
1945) and Lecturer at the Adjutant 
General's School (USA) in 1944- 

It is impossible to list all the at- 
tributes of these distinguished fu- 
ture guests of L.V., but these brief 
sketches are a hint of the dynamic 
program the committees for Reli- 
gious Emphasis Week have planned

Clio Elects Officers 
Changes Constitution 

Joyce Meadows, senior conser- 
vite, was chosen to succeed Elaine 
Heilman as president of Clio at an 
election held on Thursday, Jan. 15. 
At this time Dorothy Zinc, a junior 
in the conserv, was elected vice- 
president, and Charlotte Rohr- 
baugh, sophomore pre-medical stu- 
dent, was chosen for the office of 
secretary. Beatrice Meiser will con- 
tinue her duties as treasurer of the 
society. The new officers assumed 
their duties at the first meeting of 
the society this semester on Mon- 
day, February 2. 

At the short business meeting- 
preceding the anniversary party on 
Monday, Feb. 2, Ruth Whitman, 
senior chemistry student, was se- 
lected Anniversary President. Clio 
will celebrate the seventy-fifth an- 
niversary of its founding at a dance 
to be held April 24. 

A change in the constitution of 
the society was also approved by 
the group. It was decided that in 
the future officers will not be 
changed at the end of each semes- 
ter. Officers will retain their office 
throughout the school year. 

Following the business meeting a 
social was held and refreshments 
were served. 


One of the most disappointing 
aspects of the speeches of the pres- 
idential candidates (avowed and 
implied) is the omission from their 
platforms of any reference to the 
abolition of the motion picture in- 
dustry's so-called short subjects- 
Hollywood's contribution to in- 
creased and intensified phychoses. 
A peculiarity of the American scene 
is the fact that the "movie-going" 
public will pay a more than ade- 
quate price of admission for a pic- 
"re it wants to see and then sub- 
mit passively to the frustrating ne • 
cessity of exposure to from one- 
naif to one hour of these "added 
distractions" befcie the feature 
picture is presented. 

A case in point, recently 
flaunted in the neighboring thea- 
ters, was a minor epic devoted to the 
more violent stages of spastic schi- 
zophrenia. For the space of fif- 
teen minutes the audience is per- 
mitted to watch a group of rapid- 
eyed young men caparisoned in 
sport jackets and striped ties, with 
musical instruments clutched firm- 
ly in their hands, make with spas- 
modic bursts of brassy dissonance. 
Seated directly in front of this 
group, and centered with geomet- 
rical precision, is a young man sur- 
rounded by various members of the 
percussion family. The young man 
is ostensibly the leader of the 

group, inasmuch as they respond, 
automaton-like, to some prear- 
ranged set of signals from his (pos- 
sibly a raised drum stick, a spastic 
movement of his body, or some 
phenomena of extra sensory per- 
ception) putting their instruments 
to their mouths for short brassy 
shrieks, then dropping them to their 
laps in perfect synchronization. 
This, in itself, is not overly remark- 
able, but the phenomenal behav - 
ior of the young percussionist de 
serves a word of comment. 

His specialty, aside from pound- 
ing vigorously on the vellum cover- 
ed cylinders, apparently resides in 
the extreme mobility of his feat- 
ures, which run the gamut of ex- 
pression from that of complete 
sensuous ecstasy to the quintes- 
sence of utter boredom. The facial 
expressions are accompanied by 
gesticulations uhat can be mildly 
described as extraordinary; these 
range from momentary catalepsy to 
an imitation of a humming bird 
with St. Vitus dance. 

When one appraises this per- 
formance in the light of a psycho- 
logical experiment, it is unusual; 
when it is viewed as an aspect, r 
our national culture, it is discour-

Valley Cagers Whop Moravian 
80*64 Breaking 3-Game Drought 

Dutchmen Drop Successive Contests to 
Albright, Scranton, Dickinson By 10 Points 

Unleashing a dazzling fourth period attack when they poured 29 
points through the hoop, Ralph Mease's revitalized Flying Dutchmen 
swamped the Moravian College Greyhounds 80-64 last Saturday night in 
Lebanon to record their second Middle Atlantic Conference victory to 
keep them in running for the Conference crown. After putting on a 
ding-dong battle for the first three 
periods when L.V. lead 51-45, the 
Dutchmen caught fire in the final 
period with one of the flashiest 
spurts of winning basketball seen 
on the Lebanon floor this year. 

The game went to prove what 
kind of basketball the Valley is 
capable of playing and it showed 
the Dutchmen were every bit the 
basketball team that we had thot 
them to be all season. No player 
can be singled out as the "star" of 
the contest, it was a team victory 
with every man playing top-flight 
ball. Bob Hess, shrimp-sized Valley 
forward, was a "double-duty-beau- 
ty," as he was all over the floor in 
the same breath. It was Bob who 
knocked the props out from under 
Moravian as he repeatedly stole the 
ball and broke up the Greyhound 
attack in addition to scoring 11 
points. Floyd Becker was the out- 
standing point-getter for the Valley 
as he hit the mark for 21 points, 
with 12 of them coming in the final 
period. Team captain Rinso Mar- 
quette thrilled the crowd as he 
came through with 15 points, most 
of them via his spectacular jump 

"Whitey" Brunner played his us- 
ual stalwart defensive game and al- 
so supplied some of the offensive 
punch as he accounted for 11 pts. 
with seven of them coming in the 
third quarter. Hank DiJohnson 
scored 7 points and teamed with 
Hess to intercept Moravian passes 
and to speed up the Valley play in 
the second half. 

The final score, however, does not 
give a true picture of the game. 
Moravian jumped into an 11-4 lead 
after the first five minutes and held 
a six point lead at the close of the 
first period. It was Marquette and 
Gemberling who kept the Dutch- 
men within striking distance as 
they accounted for 10 of the Val- 
ley's first 15 points. The Grey- 
hounds were employing a fast- 
break, and though they were miss- 
ing badly from close up, they man- 
aged to hold the lead until 4 min- 
utes of the second period when L. 
V. tied the count at 24 all. Then 
the lead changed hands eight times 
and the score was tied on five occa- 
sions as the Dutchmen forged into 
a 38-36 lead at the half. 

Moravian went ahead for the last 
time after five minutes in the third 
frame when they led 43-42. But the 
Valley regained control, went ahead 
on 44-43 on Bill Brunner 's foul toss 
and exerted heavy pressure the rest 
of the game as Moravian caved in 
on both attack and defense. 

In the final period the Valley of- 
fense was running at full throttle. 
Moravian, after trailing at the 
three quarter mark, 51-45, narrow- 
ed the margin to pull within three 
points of the Valley, but the Dutch- 
men were having none of that. 
Becker began "hitting-for-two" and 
Bobby Hess was all over the court 
like a "nervous cat." Valley faith- 
ful were delirious with joy as the 
Dutchmen romped up the floor to 
ring up two-pointers in precision- 
like style, and the house roared as 
Pete Gamber rolled in the 80th 
point on a lay-up with 1 second re- 

Lebanon Valley's hopes for a pos- 
sible Middle Atlantic Basketball 
Championship received a rude set- 

back over the past weeks as the 
Flying Dutchmen dropped two de- 
cisions to Conference opponents. 
On Jan. 14 Ralph Mease's D-men 
went down to a one-point 47-45 de- 
feat at the hands of a high-power- 
ed Albright five; and then, on Jan. 
24, they absorbed a 55-52 defeat ad- 
ministered by the Scranton Uni- 
versity Royals. 

Against Albright the Valley suc- 
cumbed to a two-man scoring com- 
bine in the persons of Ed Anlian 
and Ossie Kreibel, but only after 
one of those nip-and-tuck affairs 
that had the crowd on its feet. 

The game was an uphill battle 
for the Dutchmen, but one that 
gave no indication as to the out- 
come up to the final whistle. L.V. 
was out in front, 21-18, midway in 
the second period, but Albright 
closed with a rush before the half 
to score four field goals while lim- 
iting the Valley to one foul toss to 
take a half-time lead of 26-22. 

Albright moved out in front 33- 
24 after 7 minutes in the third per- 
iod, but then the Dutchmen took 
to flight. Led by Gemberling, who 
scored 10 points for the evening, 
the Valley went on a scoring 
splurge that brought them to with- 
in 3 points of Albright at the start 
of the final quarter when the Lions 
led 41-38. The Valley continued to 
roll as they surged out in front 44- 
43, but that advantage quickly dis- 
appeared as Albright went ahead, 
49-47, with a minute remaining. 

Albright, intent to hold on to 
their slim lead, began to employ a 
freeze and the floor became a scene 
of a game which resembled chase - 
the-leader. A technical was called 
on the Lions and Rinso missed the 
toss. L.V., still trying to get the ball 
for one desperate shot, committed 
4 fouls, but each time Albright 
elected to take the ball out. With 
30 seconds remaining the Dutch- 
men got possession, but then lost 
the ball; again with 7 seconds to 
go L.V. had the ball out under the 
Albright basket. Bob Hess passed 
in to Becker, but Beck couldn't get 
clear to throw up a shot and the 
Valley went down to defeat. 

Lebanon Valley's Flying Dutch- 
men went down to what will in all 
probability be their most bitter de- 
feat of the season when they 
dropped a 59-56 decision to a 
"fighting" Dickinson College quin- 
tet on Feb. 4. at Carlisle. The mat- 
ter of superiority between the Val- 
ley and Dickinson still remains a 
question as open as it was before 
the latter eked out the last-minute 
three point decision. 

It was a rough-house game that 
at times got beyond gentlemanly 
bounds as the Dutchmen came 
within a whisker of upsetting the 
arrogant Dickinsonians. 

The Dutchmen showed a coura- 
geous brand of basketball as they 
battled Dickinson right down to the 
wire. Coach Mease came up with 
an unpolished gem in Ray Kline, 
who was recently promoted to the 
first string. Ray turned in the fin- 
est individual exploit of the night 
as he bagged 18 points; and it was 
his sterling play under the backet 
that generated most of the Valley

tial quarter and they continued to 
maintain a substantial lead until 
near the close of the half when 
Floyd Becker connected with three 
quick sets from the right side to 
pull the Valley to within four points 
of Dickinson at intermission. 

After the half the Dutchmen 
came out winging with all the verve 
of 100 cc. injection of benzedrine 
as Kline began peppering the net. 

The margin that Dickinson had 
built up began to melt. Down it 
dipped until the score was tied at 
40-up with two minutes to go in 
the third period. L.V. added four 
points by the close of the third 
period and held a 44-40 lead as the 
final quarter got under way. 

The Dutchmen tried desperately 
to hold the lead, but it began to 
dwindle as Dickinson broke thru 

Valley defenses to tally. With f° 
and a half minutes showing ° n ^ 
clock, the score was deadlocked ^

torrid pace. Then Johnny

quite overtake.

Political Sci. Students 
Will Participate 
In Model Convention 

Under the direction of Professor 
Maud P. Laughlin, a delegation of 
political science students is making 
plans for participation in the Mod- 
el Political Convention to be held 
by the Intercollegiate Conference 
on" Government in Philadelphia 
during the weekend of April 8-11. 

The I.C.G., whose membership 
includes most of the colleges and 
universities in Pennsylvania, meets 
annually in model political assemb- 
lage in order to give college stu- 
dents an opportunity to experience 
the mechanics of government. Last 
year the I.C.G. met as a model state 
legislature in Harrisburg. The LVC 
delegation turned in a creditable 
performance as first-year dele- 

A preliminary meeting, at which 
general procedure and policy are 
to be worked out, will be held in 
Harrisburg on February 28. Profes- 
sor Laughlin, Student Chairman 
Fred Tice, and Alex J. Fehr of the 
Rules Committee will attend as rep- 
resentatives of Lebanon Valley 

Entries will be accepted in five 
classes from now until April 30, 
1948. First place awards will be 
made for the best pictures in the 
News, Pictorial-Feature, Fashion, 
Sports, and Industrial classes. The 
grand prize will be awarded to the 
best of these five winners. 

Students regularly enrolled in 
any college or university are elig- 
ible to enter up to ten prints with 
no more than five entries.

Valley Five Noses Out Scranton 

To Take Lead In Conference 

Extra-Period Game Ends In 59-54 Score 
For Fifth League Victory In Seven Games 

Lebanon Valley's fighting Flying Dutchmen cleared another hurdle 
on the road to a possible Western Division title of the Middle Atlantic 
Conference when they downed the Scranton University Royals, 59-54. 
in a topsy-turvy overtime battle Saturday night in Lebanon. It marked 
the fifth conference victory for the Valley in seven starts. 

Coach Ralph Mease's determined 
Dutchmen came on fast in the final 
quarter to score 22 points and tie 
the count at 51 all at the end of 
the regulation game. In the ensu- 
ing five minute overtime the Valley 
had too much strength for the rag- 
ged Royals as they scored eight 
points to win the stirring struggle. 

It was an uphill battle for the 
D-men most of the way;. After 
jumping into a first quarter lead, 
the Valley pace slackened as Scran- 
ton forged to the front. By half- 
time the Royals, meeting with con- 
siderable success from the outside, 
had piled up a commanding 23-15 

Scranton continued out in front, 
and they held a bulging 13 point 
lead midway in the third period. 
But at the start of the final quar- 
ter the Dutchmen had closed the 
gap to seven points and they were 
starting to shake off their lassi- 
tude. The capacity crowd, sensing 
a Valley rally, began to whoop it up, 
and at the beginning of the final 
period the Dutchmen began to roll. 
With Marquette in the driver's 
seat, they scored nine points in suc- 
cession and went out in front 49- 
45. Scranton tied the count at 49 
all, but then Gemberling and 
Becker each dropped in a foul toss 
to give the Valley a two point ad- 
vantage. As the last few seconds 
were ticking off, Scranton gained 
possession of the ball and fired in 
a long shot to send the game into

EVERY now and again it behooves us to turn the editorial pen to one 
of the peculiar manifestations of post-war campus life — or lack of it. 
And this is one of those times. 

Call it what you will: School Spirit, the Old College Try, or even 

Rah-Rah Stuff It's conspicuously lacking. And except for a few 

indefatigable souls, no one seems particularly worried about it. The cam- 
pus organization or activity that hasn't felt this indifference on the part 
of the student body— and often the faculty— has yet to be heard from. 
If such a group exists, the secret of its success would be welcomed by the 
handful of students who bear the greater portion of the burden in keep- 
ing LVC from becoming just another diploma factory. 

Any attempt to cite examples of this lethargic attitude would be 
woefully incomprehensive and obviously unnecessary. You see it every- 

Organization rosters are well-padded with the names of individuals 
who evidently joined them for the sole purpose of seeing their names 
in the paper or their pictures in the Quittie. If these card-holders and 
token zealots were disregarded, we would venture the opinion that the 
destinies of all campus activities are in the hands of two or three dozen 
persons. And if these overworked die-hards were to reflect on the fact 
that they are pouring their life's blood into a torpid vacuum and throw 
in the towel, campus activities would simply cease to exist. 

This this situation exists is undeniable. 

Perhaps it's an inevitable by-product of the materialistic atomic age. 

Perhaps the time has come for the valiant few to concede defeat and 
simply allow their organizations to "fold their tents like the Arabs and 
as silently steal away." They probably wouldn't be missed. 

We don't know. We were just wondering. 



To whoever writes this article, 
may I warn them that some day 
they are going to strangle on a 
three syllable adjective. 

On February 12, you wrote how 
you disliked short subjects in mov- 
ies. Well, the movie industry can't 
please everyone. In that I am con- 
nected with the Loews and M.G.M. 
publicity department, I can assure 
you that out of every hundred peo- 
ple going to the movies, eighty-five 
of these people want Short Sub- 
jects. Often it is the Short Subject 
that is the deciding factor whether 
one will go to this movie or that. 

At present the studios are incap- 
able of making enough short sub- 
jects to fill a fifty-two week de- 
mand, and thus, some studios are 
turning out rush jobs to please the 
audience. Yes, I believe shorts are 
here to stay. Look around you when 
a Bugs Bunny, Donald Duck, or 
Tom and Jerry go on the screen. 
You'll see smiles a mile wide. If 
you'll note closer, many actors get 
their start on shorts like Passing 
Parade, Pete Smith Specialty, Jer- 
ry Fairbanks Production, Para- 
mount's Featurettes, and the like. 

Whether you like it or not, shorts 
are here to stay. Haven't you no- 
ticed people will even stay in for 
the prevues? Or, was this article 
merely a lesson in English? 

Very truly yours,

Despite Mr. Reamer's statistics, 
erudition, and certainty that, 
"shorts are here to stay," Reflec- 
tions steadfastly urges: Down with 
the shorts! 

Circulation Sparks 

To the Editor: 

According to your editorial in the 
Feb. 12, 1948, issue, there are some 
points which you seem to misun- 
derstand about the re-organization 
of the Student-Faculty Council. 
This letter will be an attempt to 
clarify the situation for you as well 
as any other students who may be 

The letter sent out by the Stu- 
dent Faculty Council did not con- 
tain anything about formulating 
opinion of students as is implied by 
the closing sentence of your edi- 
torial. It did mention the desire of 
the Student-Faculty Council to 
have the authority to direct stu- 
dent opinion to the satisfaction of 
the greater majority. Do you not 
feel that this is necessary on cam- 
pus? Where, at present, can stu- 
dents express legitimate dissatis- 
factions and receive, in return, ben- 
ecial action? Would it be undemo- 
cratic to have a Student-Faculty 
Council which could satisfy justi- 
fiable "gripes" of students? You 
stated that the Council is represen- 
tative neither of students nor fac- 
ulty. There seems to be an error in 
this statement. At present, the stu- 
dent contingent of the Council is

composed of the presidents of the 
organizatons represented, and | or by 
students appointed by and with the 
approval of the organization they 
represent. This seems to satisfy the 
democratic principle of group rep- 
resentation. Your statement is cor- 
rect that students could form blocs 
to push action through. That is the 
situation at present, but after re- 
organization, before any action of 
the council could become effective 
a student vote of approval would 
be necessary. Unfortunately, under 
no circumstances can everyone be 

In conclusion, the student body 
seems to have a desire for re-or- 
ganization of the Student-Faculty

Noonday Interlude 


He looked at his arm resting on 
the steering wheel. The bleached 
hairs formed a pleasing contrast 
with the deep, healthy brown of his 
skin. Just think, he mused, some 
people have to go to Miami. The 
sun's intense, unremittant incan- 
descence was creeping in; its prog- 
ress marked by a hot wedge of 
light ,inexorably advancing over the 
seat of the truck, slowly inundating 
his leg, creeping up his side. It was 
stifling. The glistening sweat trick- 
led down his chest, collected mom- 
entarily in the slouched ridges uf 
his stomach, then continued in lit- 
tle rivulets that were lost in the 
sogginess of his waist-band. Phew! 
might as well change to the back of 
the truck, ought to be some shade 
there now. The tiny patch of cool - 
ness was filled with a broken-down 
canvas cot on which three perspir - 
ation-streaked forms scarcely mov- 
at a desultory game of rummy. No 
room. He squatted in the dust, his 
back against a wheel, pulling his 
cap low against the aching white- 
ness of the coral runway. Four 
more hours yet . . . these day shifts 
are lousy, next week oughta be 
nights, thank God . . . Damn, but 
it's hot. 

His restless stare suddenly at- 
tended a speck moving up the taxi- 
way. It loomed larger. It loomed 
larger — huh, a six-by-six, maybe 
the chow truck. Roaring closer, 
leaving a white dust trail behind, 
it ground to a stop as the crash- 
crew came to life and queued up 
with a rattle of mess kits. 

He chopped disgustedly at the 
spam and tasteless vegetables, took 
a drink of the tepid, artificial lem- 
on drink, gagged, and pressed his 
tongue against his teeth at the 
edgy acid-sourness of it. Wonder 
what they'll have tonight . . . Hope 
they fix that damned ice machine 
so we can have something cold. . . . 
His musings were suddenly inter- 
rupted . . . 



Two red flares settled slowly 
the runway, swinging gently back 
and forth from their tiny para- 
chutes. A transport, revving up at 

the far end of the strip for a tak 
off, swung abruptly and taxied ff 
the field. A sudden tightness g^* 
ped his stomach as he raced for 
truck cab. He leapt in and slam 
med the door as the rest of \^ 
crew scrambled on back. He caug^ 
a glimpse in the mirror of figu re l 
struggling into asbestos suits; hi s 
hand snapped on the ignition, f 0o t 
pressing the starter — a low hesitant 
whine — God damn! why hachv* 
they charged that battery! 
"What's up?" 

"It's that missing P-47 from the 
Halmahara 'milk-run'," a khaki 
figure, with a smoking flare gun 
in his hand, shouted down from the 
control tower, "Must be shot up 
pretty bad." 

This is it! This is it! he thought 
desperately. Why wont the damn 
thing start! A little choke—Ah, 
that's it; he was rewarded by a 
cough that broke into a stomach 
easing roar. 

"Here she comes!" 

The plane's engine spluttered— 
caught — spluttered — and caught 
again. Wonder if he'll make it? The 
wavering ship gained the end of 
the runway, hesitated, and pan- 
caked in on its belly. He stepped 
on the gas, eased out the clutch, 
whipped the wheel, and sped the 
lumbering crash truck down the 
runway for all it was worth. The 
whining crescendo of the siren her- 
alded their coming; all eyes were 
upon them. Figures scurried from 
all over the field, converging on the 
crack-up to see the show. He 
crouched over the wheel with a 
tight intensity as if, somehow, his 
strength could be used to thrust 
this thing forward a little faster. 

His eyes never left the wreck. It 
hadn't come in too hard, what was 
wrong with the pilot, why didn't 
he escape the smoking trap, was he 
wounded? He swung the truck to 
the tail of the plane. The crew 
piled off and two, white, asbestos 
clad figures, armed with axe and 
wrecking bar, waddled like auto- 
matons in attempted speed towards 
the plane. 

"Get the pilot out!"

The Campus Is Talking About . . . 

Not satisfied with making history on the basketball court with then' 
fire-engine brand of play, the Flying Dutchmen are starting to set fire * 
the hearts of the campus belles too. Seen stepping out together con- 
stantly are Rinso Marquette and Rufina Balmer, Pete Gamber and Ela|n

parade last Saturday night, were Larry, "the Kin" Kinsella and FW

Hank DiJohnson also hit double 
numbers as they tossed in 52 points 
between them. 

A flurry of baskets in the open- 
ing minutes put the dapper Dutch- 
men out in front and on their way 
to marking up the mountainous 
score. During the first period Bob 
Hess provided the chief offensive 
threat as he rang-up four field 
goals. By halftime the D-men had 
increased their lead to 43-32 as 
Becker had amassed 19 points. 

The third period found the Val- 
ley peppering the cords for 26 
counters while holding the Indians 
to ten points. As Bill Brunner led 
the attack when he connected from 
the keyhole with one-handers. The 
Dutchmen continued to set a hot 
scoring pace when, with four min- 
utes to go in the final session, 
Coach Mease sent in the second 
stringers who also met with con- 
siderable scoring success to boost 
the final score to 90 points.

Dutchmen As They Tie For Division Lead 

Lebanon Valley's engine of basketball destruction, which has flat- 
tened three conferences adversaries in the last three games while roll- 
ing up 240 points, has been souped up with a new fuel which in bas- 
ketball teams is known as "fight." Against Albright Saturday night, 
and against Juniata on Feb. 11, the Mease machine was running with 
the throttle wide open. They 
whipped the Lions 70-66 in an over- 
time thriller, and ran up one of the 
highest scores recorded by the Val- 
ley when they soundly trounced Ju- 
niata by the amazing score of 96- 

The rampaging Dutchmen re- 
venged an early season loss to Al- 
bright, but only after one of those 
nip-and-tuck affairs that constitute 
the necessity of a heart specialist. 
After Ed Anlian, classy Lion for- 
ward had tied up the score 59-59 in 
the regulation time, the Valley put 
on the pressure in the overtime to 
gain the victory, their sixth of the 

Floyd Becker was the big gun in 
the Valley attack as he bombarded 
the nets for 20 points. Marsh Gem- 
berling, Rinso Marquette, and Hank 
DiJohnson also played the pleasing 
double-numbers racket as they 
chipped in with 35 points between 

Mease's mighty machine was 
geared to perfection in the final 
half as they overcame a seven point 
halftime deficit to tie the count at 
the start of the final quarter and 
then topple the Lions in the extra 
period. With plenty of scrap and 
fight which has been the chief fac- 
tor in the recent well-deserved Val- 
ley victories, the Dutchmen shook 
off their first-half lassitude in the 
dressing room to give the Reading 
fans some display of their remark- 
able scoring power as they posted 
46 points in the remainder of the 

In the way of team play, the 
Dutchmen have been functioning 
well as a unit. Against Albright, 
Gemberling turned in one of his 
best performances of the year, both 
as a point-getter and also as a de- 
fensive standout as he turned in a 
defensive masterpiece on Ossie 
Kreibel, elongated Albright center. 
Floyd Becker had been unbelieving- 
ly deft on his set shots in the last 
three games as he has come thru 
in great style. The guards — Di- 
Johnson and Marquette — are two 
big reasons why the Valley is defi- 
nitely in the race for the league 
crown, as they can always be 
counted on for a top performance. 

Bill Brunner and Ray Kline have 
both blossomed out to give Coach 
Mease added height under the 
boards. Brunner especially has 
proven himself of the class to merit 
much-deserved praise. Bobby Hess 
has really been the spark that has 
ignited the Valley team. He is cus- 
tom-made for the "New Look" 
which Coach Mease has brought 
about by inaugurating the Valley's 
new style of run-and-shoot basket- 
ball, which, when running smooth - 
ly, is a sight to see. 

In achieving the spectacular win 
over Juniata, the Valley outran, 
outscored and outhustled the In- 
dians as they pounded the boards 
at full speed to score 20 or more 
points each quarter. Juniata had 
neither the finesse nor the reserve 
strength to combat the Dutchmen 
as the Valley swished the cords 
from all angles and in all ways. 

Floyd Becker, the sensational 
soph, scored 25 points as he whirled 
in ten double-deckers and five free 
throws to lead his hoop-happy 
teammates in the one sided tri- 
umph. Bill Brunner, Bob Hess and 

With the Dutchmen 

If you have a bad heart, we 
strongly advise you not to see a 
Lebanon Valley basketball game, 
but if you want to be thrilled to the 
core; to have various sensations of 
agony and sickness in your stom- 
ach, see the Valleymen play. On two 
successive Saturday nights Valley 
fans have seen their favorites be- 
hind at the half, by 7 and 8 points 
respectively, and have seen them 
come thrillingly from behind to 
snatch victory from almost certain 
defeat. This leaves fans limp as a 
rag after the game and giving them 
a feeling that they have been play- 
ing the game as well as the players 
We feel the Valley had some bad 
basketball in their system. Last 
Saturday night they got it out, and 
through the combination of an in- 
jured first stringer, five men fouled 
out, and a tired Scranton quint 
which had already played 3 games 
that week, and only the night be- 
fore an overtime game with Seton 
Hall, losing 57-56, were able to come 
out on top. 

We want to congratulate the 
Scranton boys on a fine game. 
Granted they were a little rough 
in spots, and committed more than 
their share of fouls, they did im- 
press us. From their coach on down 
they handled themselves and were 
not given to much complaining. 

Writing this column three days 
before it shows in print is disad- 
vantageous, as we, of course, cannot 
perceive the outcome of the Sus- 
quehanna and Moravian games, 
but we confidently expect the 
Dutchmen to come through to vic- 
tory in both games. The predic- 
tions of victory in the Moravian 
game may make .us hide our heads 
come Thursday, but we've said it, 
come what may. 

With 183 points in 12 games, 
Floyd Becker is the only Dutchman 
who has a chance to crash the 200 
point column. His total gives him 
an average of 15.25 points per 
game. Captain Marquette, with 120 
points in 12 games, is averaging 10 
points per game. 

The Jay-Vees have kept pace 
with the varsity in the last four 
games, having won four straight. 
Their record now stands at 9 and 2, 

quite an average for little Danny 
Seiverling, who seems to know what 
to do at the correct time. Bob Fish- 
er has more than compensated for 
the loss of Charley Witman thru 
scholastic difficulties, and the addi- 
tion of "Buzz" Levick from Drake 
University has given added reserve 
strength to the squad. "Buzz" is a 
definite possibility for a varsity 
berth next year, as are Larry Kin- 
sella and Charley Zimmerman. 

Sports In Shorts 

The girls' basketball team got of! 
to a rather bad start by dropping 
their first five games of the season 
to Albright, Lock Haven, Shippens- 
burg, and two games to Elizabeth- 

The team finally came into its 
own when, on February 16, they 
defeated the Moravian girls by a 
score of 43-21. 

Early in the first quarter, the 
Dutchgirls took the lead and re- 
mained ahead for the remainder of 
the game. The score at half-time 
was 25-9, favor the home team. The 
lassies came back with as much 
enthusiasm as they displayed upon 
entering the game, and at the fin- 
ish the score was 43 to 21. 

The brilliant playing of every 
member of the team was displayed 
in this game, Betty Edelman lead- 
ing the scoring with 26 points for 
the home team. Greenwill was top- 
scorer for Moravian with 13 points. 

Ready for another victory, the 
L.V.C. lassies traveled to Millers- 
ville where their hopes were shat- 
tered, for Millersville handed them 
a 28-23 defeat. The game was nip 
and tuck the whole way, and at 
half-time the Dutchgirls held a 
one point lead. The Valleyites con- 
tinued to lead until the middle of 
Ihe third quarter when a number 
of fouls committed by the L.V. las- 
sies gave Millersville a five point 
lead. Unable to score the necessary 
points that mean victory, the Val- 
leyites were handed a 28 to 23 de- 

The junior varsity team was de- 
feated by Millersville by a score 
of 24 to 22.

The hose men converged on .the 
burning engine, trailing tubes of 
black rubber that spun from the 
reels. He worked the pump controls 
with rapid, rehearsed precision. He 
could see the pilot suddenly move 
— He was still alive! A hand reach- 
ed from the cockpit, grasped the 
canopy and jammed it back. 
"Watch out!" 

The eager flames had reached th? 
broken wing with its supply of gas- 

"She's gonna blow!" 

The hose men dropped their noz- 
ztes, the two asbestos-clad figures 
hesitated, kicked off their encum- 
bering boots and followed in a ter- 
rified rush for safety. He flung his 
arm across his eyes against the dull 
flame-mushroomed explosion. The 
orange billowing horror smothered 
the half erect pilot, struggling to 
free himself in a last futile life 
grasping effort. 

The show was over. The crowd 
broke and collected into groups of 
two's and three's that sauntered 
back to their jobs. 

"Boy, that baby really went up." 

"Hell, that was nuthin, didja see 
that B-24 yesterday?" 

A latecomer half trotted to the 
scene, gazed at the burnt out 
wreckage, and disappointedly turn-

A lieutenant drove up in a jeep. 

"Say," he addressed the officer 
in charge, "Any plexiglas on that 
wreck I can get my hands on?" 

"Nope. All burnt up." 

"Damnit to hell! Well, maybe 
there's some over at the salvage 
yard. Thanks anyway," he called, 
driving away. 

Only the crash crew was left. 

He climbed into the truck, 
slouched behind the wheel and 
waited for the crew to roll in the 
hose. Guess that lousy Spam'll be 
cold by now, tasted crappy enough 
before . . . Oughta get a beer issue

damn ice machine. He raked the 
sweat from his brow with a crooked 
forefinger . . . Damn, but it's hot!

To organize, plan, and direct the telephone busi- 
ness — a business with its roots in so many 
communities throughout the state — hundreds of 
men and women, skilled in the complexities of 
telephone work, are required. 

It is these men and women — telephone employees 
at various stages of their careers — who, side by 
side with all employees, accept the responsibility 
of providing you with good telephone service at 
low cost. 

"Up from the ranks" is a familiar phrase to tele- 
phone people, for each of them knows that the op- 
portunity to assume more and more responsibilities 
is open to all and that those who come up from the 
ranks earn, by their own abilities, the rewards of 
promotion for good work well done. 

Opportunity of this sort means much to you, for 
the skill and experience of telephone people, work- 
ing together in a common cause, are major factors 
in providing good telephone service at low cost.

King, a concert baritone, artistic- 
ally famous in the southern, east- 
ern, and midwestern sections of the 
country, where he has traveled on 
tours; the soprano solo will be ren- 
dered by Miss Ruth Becker, of 
Reading, Pennsylvania; the con- 
tralto role will be performed by 
Mrs. Helen Hartman Dale, of Har- 
risburg, who has appeared on Leb- 
anon Valley programs on three pre- 
vious occasions and who is now an 
instructor at a conservatory ' in 
Philadelphia. Miss Mary Jane Eck- 
ert, a senior in the Conservatory of 
Music, will sing the part of the 
Youth; and Mr. Reynaldo Rovers, a 
voice professor at the conservatory 
for the past three years, will do the 
tenor lead. Mr. Rovers, who has 
sung Mendelssohn's "Elijah" on 
previous occasions, usually did the 
baritone lead, but, due to a change 
in vocal range, will do the tenor 
solo in this musical presentation. 

The theme of the "Elijah" is the 
religious convictions of two sects in 
Israel. Baal was the idol the Isra- 
elites worshipped and God's proph- 
et was Elijah. Elijah was com- 
manded to abolish the worship of 
Baal, and caused a great drought 
to strike the Baal worshippers in 
Israel as punishment for their dis- 
belief. The tests of the power of 
the two gods follow and God caus- 
es the fire to consume the sacrifices 
offered on the altar. Elijah, who

Rec Hall Hours 
To Be Extended 

Rec Hall commandos may tender 
a vote of thanks to the Jiggerboard 
and Senate for making possible the 
extension of the hours during 
which the hall may be kept open. 
Members of these governing; bodies 
will be appointed to chaperone on 
Friday and Saturday nights from 
10 until 12. 

Rumors were circulating to the 
effect that the Jiggerboard was 
willing but that the Senate had re- 
fused to cooperate. However, veri- 
fication of the facts disclosed that 
Rinso Marquette, president of the 
Senate, had not been approached 
about the subject until last Friday. 
Rinso stated that the Senate would 
ao its share to help in keeping tht. 
hall open for the benefit of the 
student body. 

The possibility of opening the 
hall on Sunday afternoons is being

Egg Hunt, Hat Creations 
Highlight Clio Meeting 

Clio Hall was the scene of a de- 
lightful Easter party on Monday, 
March 22, at 7:15 p.m. 

The highlight of the program was 
the making of Easter bonnets by 
each girl using only paper plates, 
crepe paper, and pins as raw mate- 
rials. Each member there modeled 
her own creation. Miss Mary E. Gil- 
lespie, Dean of Women, judged the 
hats on originality, color scheme, 
and becomingness to the person. A 
pie plate trimmed with aqua crepe 
paper, a fuschia rose, and tied un- 
der the chin with an aqua bow 
made by Phyllis Dale was selected 
the winner. 

An egg hunt followed the girls' 
attempts at creating head-line 
fashions. Joanna Norris was the 
super sleuth who tracked down the 
lone egg on which "Happy Easter" 
was written. Refreshments were 
then served.

Campus X Section 

This is going to be your column. 
Your ideas and opinions on nation- 
al and world events are important. 
Your decisions and ours all added 
together help to decide major poli- 
cies. We have a right to know how 
the majority is thinking. In order 
to show you how the majority on 
our campus feels about such out- 
standing issues as a proposed in- 
crease in our armed forces, who 
should be our next president, etc., 
the chapel program sheets will car- 
ry questions on these issues. Thru 
the results you can see how most of 
the students feel about them. 

We have a problem. What should 
we call this poll? It should have 
an official name. Next week, in ad- 
dition to the regular questions, 
space will be provided for your 
suggestions concerning a good 
name for the opinion poll. If you 
think of an original name, make 
your contribution, and you may see 
it in print in the next edition of 

The first question brought be- 
fore the students was in relation to 
the proposed military preparedness 
program. Question No. 1 was: "Do 
you think the U. S. should increase 
the size of its armed forces?" The 
following results were obtained. 

The total number of answers re- 
ceived was 436, with the number 
of veterans being 224 and non-vet- 
erans being 212.

Non-Vets 179 

Total Opinion. 385 




The second question was: "The 
U. S. should increase the size of its 
armed forces by following a pro- 
gram of: 

1. Selective Service and Univer- 
sal Military Training as recom- 
mended by President Truman. 

Selective Service wthout Uni- 
versal Military Training. 

3. Universal Military Training 
without Selective Service.

In addition, there were some 
fourth alternatives suggested: 

1. Increased enlistments. 

2. Increased expenditures for air 
power and atomic research. 

3. National athletics program. 
The "if's" included: 

1. If it is the only thing that can 
be done to stop Russia. 

2. If it is accompanied by inten 
sive technical training instead of 

manual of arms" training. 

And then there was the very em- 
phatic suggestion to "throw the 
militarists out of our 
State Department and put in in- 
telligent diplomats without inher- 
ent prejudices; then I'll not be 
ashamed of our State Department 
and its foreign policy." 

The overwhelming majority were 
in favor of increasing our military 
power as a step to peace. One of 
the "if's" deserves honorable men- 
tion — "if it is the only thing that 
can be done to stop Russia." Up to 
the present time in history man's 
main method of solving interna- 
tional problems has been by "fight - 
ing it out." Isn't it time we find a 
better way? 

The Campus Is Talking About . . . 


Sophomore — The Snowball theme and the excellent floor show m a(Je 
the Sophs' effort a big success. With Pete Barcia in his inimitable 
routine as Al Jolson and George Ritner's Irish numbers there ^ 
plenty of variety. Jeanne Bozarth handled the emceeing capably

guished last name, Dick Eisenhour, over athletics, and New Jersey 
these days. Barb Blouch with Steve Crowell and B. J. Butt with j 0e 
Fiorello were the liveliest dancing partners of the evening. 
Freshmen — The Community building at Hershey was attractively 
decorated for the semi-formal dance held there by the Freshmen 
Janie Flinchbaugh with Joe Campanella brought many a surpri Se( j 
and wondering glance, but Smitty still seems to be very much h 
the picture. Dick Moore and Jo Kessler had a gay time from the 
looks of things, and them, but Jo has been letting her Art-i s ti c 
nature take over since then. Sozia Mieckowska with Eddie Steiner 
made a striking dance team. 

Kalo-Delphian — The Spanish Room of the Hotel Hershey was the 
location of this well attended dance. Notable among the alumni 
were Miles Harriger with his fiancee, Dot, and Madalyn Quickel with 
her latest, Bob. Jane E. Reed with her constant companion, Bob 
Fisher, of football fame tripped the light fantastic. — Faye Krout 
with Lloyd Dekker made the cutest couple on the floor, and mighty 
smooth dancing they did, too. Ruth Gluck with Henry Deens, Karl 
Miller with Vera Boyer, and Sarah Zellers with Pat Esposito were 
the surprises of the evening. 

Day Student — This dance brought forth some happily married cou- 
ples — among them Mr. and Mrs. Paul Shettel, Mr. and Mrs. Mark 
Arnold, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Koons, and Mr. and Mrs. Frank Huff, to 
name a few. The surprise combinations included Thelma Musselman 
and Arthur Bacastow, Mary Edelman and Johnnie Light, Nancy 
Meyer (what would Jefferson Hospital say!) and Richard Hartman 
— It was a pleasant surprise to see L. V. graduate, wee Dottie Smith, 
and Eugene Nelson still very happy — also "Bert" Barbini and her 
tall, handsome, "Ronnie" Sounded a bit as though Johnny Ad- 
ams' "vocalass" Nan Urich thinking about her U. of P. heartbeat 
while singing those love songs! 

IT'S SPRING AGAIN— Hazel Kinney and Ronnie Wolf feeling it's ef-

Last year the I. C. G. met as a 
Model State Legislature in Harris- 
burg. Frederick Tice, who led the 
group last year through an amaz- 
ing performance for first-time par- 
ticipants, held a series of local 
meetings in order to give intensive 
training to the new delegates in 
parliamentary procedure and the 
rough-and-tumble nature of poli- 

The purpose of the I. C. G. is to 
teach college students the mechan- 
ics of government by actually prac- 
ticing the procedures of typical po- 
litical assemblages. Model political 
conventions have been held previ- 
ously by the I. C. G. in 1936 and 
again in 1940. The meeting this 
year is expected to be of unusual 
interest because of the highly con- 
troverial nature of the problems.

Chemistry Club Takes 
First Field Trip 

Rochester, New York, and an in-

lens makers, Bausch and Lomb, was 
the destination of those sleepy eyed 
students you might have seen 
straggling toward the Ad Building 
at 4:30 a.m. on Wednesday morn- 
ing, April 7. The Lebanon Valley 
Chemistry Club on that day made 
the first of two field trips to in- 
dustrial plants that have been 
planned for the current year. Ar- 
riving at the plant at 1 o'clock in 
the afternoon, the students were 
taken on a conducted tour of por- 
tions of the plant and the labora- 
tory. The group then returned the 
same day, tired but happy after the 
enjoyable and instructive trip. 

At the last meeting of the Cheni

BASKETBALL RESUME With the Dutchmen Sports In Shorts 

The final whistle has blown and the last point has been scored as 
!947-48 Lebanon Valley basketball team closed a banner season with 
record of 10 victories against 6 defeats, while scoring 1,012 points 
gainst 896 for the opposition. Lebanon Valley averaged 63.25 points a 
a me, and our record > one of tne Des t in years, marks an achievement 
tTph all the followers of Valley I „ . . ■ . 

fr cn . . . , T __ ! urday at Lebanon before the larg- 

est home crowd of the season, al- 
most 3,000 persons witnessed a 

.ports should be proud. Let's go 
behind the scenes and analyze the 
. eaS on game by game, score by 
S ore , and we'll see a basketball 
f a m' that will hold a high spot in 


basketball history. Present- 

a herewith are some flashbacks on 
L highlights of the '47 -'48 season, 
a nd the players that made the 
Jampaign a success. 

First off, the credit for the suc- 
cess of a team goes to the coach 
_Ralph Mease. Ralph is the guy 
^ a t makes the Dutchmen fly! He 
ut a radically different '47-'48 
jjjodel on the court. A team that 
had many of the familiar '46 fea- 
tures, but one that was a complete 
change in style of play. Run down 
the line of the past L. V. schedule, 
and you won't find a more scrappy, 
hustling, never-say-die club on the 
list than this year's Valley crew 
The man behind the success of the 
team and to whom much credit 
must be given for the good team is 
Coa ch Ralph Mease— he did a 
magnificent job. 

No one player on the team can 
be singled out as the Mr. Big of 
Valley basketball. You don't put 
your finger on one player and say 
he's the guy who's responsible for 
L.V.'s success. We didn't have that 
kind of team. Every man was re- 
sponsible in some part for the Val- 
ley's good record. It's true that 
practically each game produced a 
new star that shone more brilli- 
antly in the Valley constellation, 
but all in all team play was respon- 
sible for the reputable Valley show- 

Before going into a game by game 
resume of the season, here are the 
headliners; the superlatives of 
1947-48 Valley basketball. 

One of marks set by the Dutch- 
men was the 109 points scored 
against the University of Balti- 
more. In a game that was actu- 
ally a rout from the opening whis- 
tle the D-men scored the greatest 
number of points ever recorded by 
a Lebanon Valley team and also set 
& scoring record for the Lebanon 
fl oor. After the varsity had rolled 
UP a 29-6 first quarter lead, Coach 
Mease calmly took out his regulars 
a nd began filling in with substi- 
tutes. Even the subs were hot shots 
JJti L.V. led 60-18 at the half. The 
"utchmen continued to rack up 
Points in heaping and leaping 
ha ndfuls and the Baltimore bri- 
gade went down with a crash, 109- 
" as L.V. won by 62 points.

rough harem - scarum struggle 
which saw the Valley close a bulg- 
ing 13 point gap which Scranton 
held midway in the third quarter 
and tie the count 59 all at the end 
of the regulation game. Then 
Becker and DiJohnson came thru 
with timely goals in the overtime 
as the Dutchmen won 59-54. 

Other performances that should 
get top billing were the home 
games against Moravian and Juni- 
ata when the Measemen played 
two of the highest scoring, smooth- 
est operating games seen in many 
a moon. Moravian was snowed un- 
der as they couldn't keep pace with 
the fast stepping Dutchmen. With 
Becker banging in 12 points in the 
final period and Bob Hess demol- 
ishing the Moravian attack, the 
Dutchmen romped for 29 points to 
outspeed the Greyhounds and win 

L.V. was definitely having one of 
its good nights against Juniata, 
They were sharp on attack and 
sound of defense as they recorded 
their second largest score of the 
season, 90-62. Becker took scoring 
laurels with 25 points, nineteen of 
them coming in the first half. 

In the season's finale the Valley 
took the measure of Franklin and 
Marshall. Once again L.V.'s great- 
er court generalship and slickness 
paid off. The score was tied 16 all 
at the end of the first period as 
the Diplomats capitalized on long 
looping field goals. The Dutchmen 
were a bit faster and considerably 
more aggressive as they forged to 
the front at halftime 26-15. Then 
Gemberling took over. Marsh per- 
formed miraculous feats of point 
making as he dumped in 23 points 
in the final half to lead the Valley 
to a crushing 83-67 triumph. 

Lebanon Valley opened the sea- 
son at Juniata on Dec. 10. They 
conquered the Indians in a close 
affair that wasn't decided until the 
final moments when DiJohnson 
pitched in the points that tipped 
the balance in L.V.'s favor as we 
won 48-41. Elizabethtown furnish- 
ed the opposition for our first home 
game. They came to Lebanon with 
the highly heralded Frank Keath, 
top collegiate scorer in the state, to 
challenge the Dutchmen. Mar- 
quette held Frank to 16 points and 
the Valley held E-town to 35 as the 
Measemen won handily 54-35. 

L.V. met with their worst defeat 
of the season against one of the 
basketball powerhouses of the na- 
tion when LaSalle, participant in 
this year's National Invitation 
Tournament, played one of the 
greatest games ever seen on the 
Lebanon boards as they tallied 17 
points to 43 for the Valley. The 
roof fell in on the overmatched 
pupils of Ralph Mease as LaSalle 
looked invincible as they crushed 
the D-men. 

Then Lafayette eked out the 38- 
36 victory over L.V. at Easton. The 
Dutchmen were out in front most 
of the way, but the Leopards scored 
a field goal in the last 70 seconds 
of play to win the contest. E-town 
was our next opponent. L.V., chal- 
lenged by a game team that re- 
fused to quit, turned on the heat 
in the final period to win by four 
points, 67-63. 

Lady Luck then put in her ap- 
pearance and in the following 
three games, against Albright, 
(Continued on Page 4) 

Before we know it, baseball sea- 
son will be upon us. The opening 
game is set for this Saturday at 
Albright and Coach Mease has been 
drilling his men for the past three 
weeks. Little can be ascertained 
just yet, but the only pitcher of 
last year returning is Charley Mil- 
ler. Wiry Herm Seigel, who pitched 
such splendid ball last season has 
decided not to come out and risk 
re-injuring that leg of his, injured 
in football last year. Marsh Gem- 
berling underwent an operation in 
Philadelphia a month ago for the 
removal of a bone chip from his 
pitching elbow. It will be another 
two weeks or more until he knows 
the outcome. Until then Marsh is 
definitely on the doubtful list for 
this spring. Newcomers who may 
make the squad are Guy~Euston 
and Larry Kinsella. However, twelve 
men came out for the first workout 
and all have a chance to win the 
three open spots on the Valley 
pitching staff. 

Hank DiJohnson and Earl Kauff- 
man return from last year's catch- 
ing staff. However, newcomers Al 
Koenig and Kadel show promise 
and may give the veterans some 
stiff competition. We'll know more 
in two weeks. But from here it 
looks like the makings of a good 

The same men who composed last 
year's squad are returning with the 
exception of Al Hildebrand and 
Herm Seigel, but with some prom- 
ising newcomers to take up the 
slack, the 1947 record of 11 wins 
and 2 losses may be closely ap- 
proached. Pitching is the big dif- 
ficulty, however, and only time can

Prof. Maud Laughlin 
Attends Phila. Meeting 

Mrs. Maud P. Laughlin, Profes- 
sor of Political Science and Sociol- 
ogy at Lebanon Valley College, at- 
tended the fifty-second annual 
meeting of the American Academy 
of Political and Social Sciences last 
weekend. The meeting was held at 
the Benjamin Franklin Hotel in 
Philadelphia. The general topic of 
discussion was "How to Achieve One 
World." Paul V. McNutt, former U.S. 
High Commissioner to the Philip- 
pines, spoke, and many other not- 
able speakers were present to lead 
the discussions and to present their 
own ideas. 

The Flying Dutchgirls closed 
their 1947-1948 basketball season in 
an ideal way by defeating the Penn 
Hall lassies by a score of 16 to 11. 

Early in the opening period of 
play, Edelman opened the scoring 
for the Valley by sinking a field 
goal. Thas was followed by a duo 
of foul shots. The quarter closed 
with Penn Hall's Pat Wolf scoring 
a foul shot, and at quarter time 
the score was 4 to 1, favor the 
home team. 

The scoring in the second quar- 
ter was few and far between for 
Penn Hall, the Valley guards hold- 
ing them to but three foul shots. 
In this period the home lassies net- 
ted six points, making the score 
at half-time 10-3. 

Late in the third quarter Penn 
Hall scored their first field goal of 
the game. This was followed by 
two more two pointers and a pair 
of foul shots in the last quarter. 
Not to be outdone, the L. V. C. for- 
wards scored three field goals mak- 
ing the final score 16 to 11, favor 

By defeating Penn Hall the L. V. 
C. team put the first blemish on 
their record, for prior to this game 
Penn Hall was undefeated. 

Gander Weekend 
To Turn Tables 
On Campus Males 

During Gander Weekend, April 
16-18, campus chivalry will go into 
reverse as the women take over 
customary male roles in the matter 
of entering buildings and the din- 
ing hall, finding seats, coat-hold- 
ing, and the payment of incidental 
bills. The usual dating procedure 
will be abandoned: the ladies will 
take the aggressive in dating, even 
to the extent of calling at the Men's 
Dorm for their dates. 

Committees have announced that 
a "Bubble Dance" will be held 
sometime during the weekend and 
the Girls' Dorms will hold open 
house on Sunday from 2-5 p.m. Ad- 
mission to the dance will be 25c 
per person, 50c per couple.

when they oppose the Lions of Al- 
bright College in the opening con- 
tests of the season. 

Both baseball mentor Ralph 
Mease and tennis coach Claude

Basketball Resume 

(Continued from Page 3) 

Scranton and Dickinson, the 
Dutchmen tasted defeat. The com- 
bined loss to these three clubs on- 
ly amounted to 10 points; games 
which could have gone either way. 

Not measuring up to par, the 
Dutchmen met defeat at the hands 
of Albright 47-45 as the Lions two 
man scoring combine of Ed Anlian 
and Ossie Kriebel led the visitors 
to a hard earned victory. Against 
Scranton the D-men, apparently 
suffering from the effects of a road 
trip, played their game only in in- 
frequent spasms as the Royals won 

Dickinson was the next team to 
speeze out a three point victory 
over L.V. as they won by the nar- 
row margin of 59-56, in one of the 
most bitterly contested games of 
the season. It was a rough-house 
affair that at times got beyond 
gentlemanly bounds as the two 
teams fought tooth and nail right 
down to the wire. The Valley re- 
ally wanted to win this one and 
the defeat was hard to take. We're 
still not convinced that the Red 
Devils have the superior team! 

Following this game, the Valley 
competely made the switch to fire 
house, run-and-shoot basketball; 
and it paid big dividends. We top- 
pled Moravian 80-64 and smother- 
ed Juniata 90-62. Then the Dutch- 
men avenged previous defeats to 
Albright and Scranton by winning 
in two overtime games. Albright 
was beaten 70-66 and Scranton de- 
feated 59-54. Winning ways were 
still maintained by the Valley 
against Susquehanna as we won 

Then came the game with Mora- 
vian. This game would decide who 
was to wear the Western Division 
crown of the Middle Atlantic Con- 
ference. Lebanon Valley lost 66- 
56. It was a real tear jerker! We 
wanted this game and wanted the 
title; but it just wasn't our night. 
The game was played at Bethle- 
hem and a great many Valley root- 
ers made the trip to see the con- 
test. It was, without question, our 
most humiliating defeat of the sea- 

The Dutchmen opened with a 
rush and moved to the front at the 
quarter, 18-10. At the half Mora- 
vian had narrowed the gap to four 
points as the Valley still led, 30-26. 
Then it happened! L.V. unaccount- 
ably caved in on both offense and 
defense. At no time in the second 
half did the Dutchmen show the 
cleverness and certainty that was 
so apparent in the first half. Mora- 
vian then went ahead on drive and 
opportunism to lead at the start of 
the final period, 49-41. The Val- 
ley fought gamely back and mid- 
way in the last quarter they had 
pulled to within four points of the 
inspired Greyhounds, but Moravian

was having one of its better nights 
and they just couldn't miss. Every- 
thing they threw up was good for 
two, and the Valley went down to 
defeat, 66-56. 

In the final two L.V. games of 
the season, the Dutchmen were 
victorious in both. 

They swamped the Baltimore 
Bees, 109-47, to run up a score that 

will long remain in the memories 
of Valley sports followers. Closing

floor against F. and M., the Dutch- 
men, with Gemberling at the helm, 
trounced the Diplomats, 83-67.

Tuition And Boarding Eates 
Increased by Finance Committee 

Rising Costs Of Operation, Improvement 
And Repair Necessitate Boost Of Prices 

Claude R. Donmoyer, Secretary of the Finance Committee, has an- 
nounced that several of the rates have been increased by action of the 
Executive and Finance Committees, in session in Harrisburg, Decem- 
ber 1947- These changes may be noted in the college catalog for. the 
1948-1949 term. Tuition has been increased $25.00 per semester. In- 
creased costs of operation make an ' 
increased income essential in order 
to cover at least a part of the 

, mounting expenditures. The facul- 

' tyhas been enlarged, and their sal- 
aries must be increased to meet the 
cost of living. The same is true of 
all employees on the campus. Costs 
of maintenance and repairs to 
buildings and equipment have in- 
creased tremendously, and many 
repairs and improvements are 
necessary because of the heavy 
traffic to which all buildings are 
being subjected. Much additional 
equipment has been purchased, 
and even more is contemplated. 

The boarding rate will also be in- 
creased by $25.00 per semester. Al- 
though it is not the school's pur- 
pose to make a profit on the opera- 
tion of the dining hall, neither 
should it be necessary to suffer a 
loss. This year the college experi- 
enced a meteoric rise in food costs 
a nd shall consequently show a loss. 
Next year there will be two more 
weeks of school than this year, 
ea ch semester having 18 weeks in- 
stead of the present 17. These two 
, additional weeks are, of course, an 
ittl Portant factor to be considered 
wi th the increased boarding 
charge. The rate increase amounts 
to 14c per day.

Structure To Seat 2500; Will Include 
Social Room, Classrooms, And Offices 

The campaign to raise funds for the new Physical Education Build- 
ing for Lebanon Valley College will soon close. It is expected that by 
the end of this year all the money needed will be in. All of the money 
received thus far has been held intact for this building alone. 

Because the structure would now cost more than twice as much as 

when the campaign began, the 

Board of Trustees will, at its next 
meeting, decide on one of these 
three alternatives: 

1. Make plans to raise additional 
money required in order that the 
entire, structure can be built at one 

2. Postpone building with the 
hopes that in the not-too-distant 
future there might be a drop in 
building costs. 

3. Proceed immediately with the 
building of the essential parts of 
the building, that is gym-floor, 
locker rooms, and showers, then 
add the rest at a later date. It is 
hoped that the third step will be 
undertaken as soon as possible. 

The gym will be located at the 
northwest corner of the campus, 
facing White Oak Street. 

The architect is Mr. C. S. Buch- 
art, of York, Pa. His firm has 
drawn up the plans which have 
been approved by the Building 
Commission and Board of Trustees 
of Lebanon Valley College. 

In a letter to LA VIE COLLEGI- 
ENNE, Mr. Buchart describes the 
building as it will be when finish- 
ed. "This structure will be ap- 
proximately 200 x 200 ft. square. It 
will house a large gymnasium 
which wil seat approximately 2,500 
people at exhibition games. This 
floor is so designed that it can be 
sub-divided for use by boys on one 
side and girls on the other. There 
will be separate shower facilities,

Govt. Conference Sidelights 

For the second straight year Fred 
Tice served as Student Chairman 
of the L. V. C. delegation to the In- 
tercollegiate Conference on Gov- 
ernment and again did a swell job. 
In all his tasks — registering the 
boys at the Bellevue -Stratford, get- 
ting them up in the morning, 
checking their attendance at com- 
mittee meetings, and keeping them 
well posted politically— Fred proved 
himself a real leader and a fine 
legislative "whip." Well-groomed, 
personable Fred graduates this 
year and has a lucrative selling job 
lined up. If he should tire of that, 
the conservative wing of politics 
may gain a valuable leader. We are 
certain to miss him around the

The job of State Chairman of the 
Labor Committee was so well han- 
dled by L. V. C.'s Al Fehr that it 
earned the praise of I. C. G.'s 
founder, Miss Genevieve Blatt, who 
said "it was among the best han- 
dled committees of the entire con- 
ference." Al used his personality 
and his earthy humor generously 
to expedite consideration of highly 
explosive labor questions before ar- 
gumentative, individualistic college 
students, numbering 62 on his com- 
mittee. Al's job was generously 
praised by students from all over 
the state and, as a result, his fellow 
delegates are grooming him for the 
top spot of Conference Chairman 
next year. 

Stocky, deep-voiced Henry Hos- 
tetter had the hardest job as mem- 
ber of the -Rules Committee and 
worked past midnight two nights 
in a row. Hen proved to be an 
ideal mixer and was the best pos- 
sible "ad" the Flying Dutchmen 
could have used in a state -wide 
meeting of this sort. Because of his 
maturity, scholastic ability, and 
enthusiasm, Hen appears to be a 
"natural" for the job of Student 
Chairman being vacated by the 
graduating Fred Tice.

monopolized the girls thereafter. 
Yep, the L. V. C. "baby kissers" like 
their babies to be about twenty 
years of age. 

Our three prima donnas among 
the delegates — "Fritz," "Jerry," and 
"Pom" — were rudely awakened one 
morning at 5:30 by the hotel oper- 
ator. The story — several Seton Hill 
girl delegates decided that these 
embryo politicos needed a fresh 
start. ,„„ 

Jim Gregg's talented camera 
added a professional touch to the 
work of the L. V. C. group. If you 
want to see the finest collection of 
college politicians, ask Jim to show 
you some of the shots he took in 

Roger McKinley impressed us all 
as being the "Silent Cal" Coolidge 
type of politician — silent and 
thoughtful. Beneath that quiet ex- 
terior, however, "Rog" has a keen 
mind and cannot be shaken in his 


The L. V. C. delegation discov- 
ered that Penna. college students 
admire politicians that are forth- 
right and statesmanlike. In the 
straw vote of presidential candi- 
dates, over 500 college students fa- 
vored Stassen by 31% of the vote. 
Vandenberg was next with 24%, Ei- 
senhower had 21%, Wallace had 
9%, Truman had 8%, and Douglas 
was last with 6%. Taft and Dewey 
were not even nominated or con- 
sidered by the group. 

Future Sophomores 
Conduct Elections 

The elections of the sophomore 
class of 1948-'49 were held on April 
15 in Philo Hall. Elected as next 
year's president was William Mil- 
ler. Vice president is Charles Gar- 
rett; secretary, Joyce Carpenter; 
and treasurer, Richard Schiemer. 
Don Yeattes was elected Student- 
Faculty Council representative. 

Circulation Sparks 

It was stated in the last issue of 
LA VIE that the credit for the new 
late hours in the Rec Hall belongs 
to the "Jiggerboard" and the Men's 
Senate. This is a mistake which 
needs correction. If credit is to be 
given, it should go to the Student 
Faculty Council. 

During one seminar held during 
Religious Emphasis Week, certain 
suggestions were made to the Stu- 
dent Faculty Council. Among these 
was that of keeping the Rec Hall 
open later on Friday and Saturday 
evenings. Because the Student 
Faculty Council felt this suggestion 
to be a good one, it appointed Karl 
Miller and Sal Fiorello as a com- 
mittee to visit President Lynch, 
and see if he would allow late 
hours. He did, on the condition 
that there should be chaperones in 
the Rec Hall during those hours. 
Dr. Lynch felt these chaperones 
should be members of the student 
governing bodies, "Jiggerboard" 
and the Men's Senate. It was then 
that Rinso Marquette and Be 
Frank were contacted, and only 
then that they knew anything at 
all about late hours. Therefore, 
any credit given, should be given 
to the Student Faculty Council, 
since it was that organization, 
working in the interest of the stu- 
dent body, that brought about the 
installation of late hours in the 
Rec Hall. 


— — 

Ed. Note— LA VIE thanked the 
governing bodies for making it pos- 
sible to keep the Rec Hall open 
(i. e. by chaperoning) . We did not 
state that credit should be given 
them for the idea. Perhaps that 
was implied and we are sorry if we 
have slighted the Council. 


"Thirty-eight awards so 

what?" This verbal jewel issued 
from a cynical pedeftrian disdain- 
fully appraising a theater marquee 
which was advertising the motion 
picture, Gentleman's Agreement. 
Possibly this skeptic was not one 
of those included with the narrow 
confines of that select group known 
as "the drama critics," but the fact 
remains that there has been a good 
bit of adverse comment on Gentle- 
men's Agreement by the movie-go- 
ing public. 

Why so much dissatisfaction 
with this multi-Oscared film? If 
one admits that it is reasonably 
good entertainment, that it is com- 
petently acted and directed, just 
what is it that sets it apart from 
and above other motion-picture 
offerings of the year? Examination 
indicates the theme has its unusual 
aspect — a denunciation of anti-se- 
mitism. An admirable effort, but 
just how effective is it? What solu- 
tion does it suggest? Does it em- 
phasize the most troublesome as- 
pect of intolerance? 

As for the effectiveness of the 
picture one must, in the final an- 
alysis, agree that at best it is but a 
step in the right direction. It suf- 
fers primarily from its didactic 
tone, and as such is bound to elicit 
an unwanted reaction from an Am- 
erican public that has demonstrat- 
ed on countless occasions that it 
dislikes being told what to do. Sec-

NOTES FROM A LITTLE BLACK BOOK— The well-worn spot, right i 
the front of the central bulletin board in the Ad. Bldg. seems to be 
the unofficial office for important business, as well as a sort of "date 

bureau!" In fact, just prove it to yourself some day plant your- 

self in an inconspicuous spot (go on, we tried it, too!), anywhere 
between the hours of 11 A. M. and 1 P. M., and keep your eyes and 
ears open wide! Yes, indeedy, proved to be mighty interesting! p or 
example, you might spot Eddie Englehart, plus any other hard- 
working members of the Senior Class, gathering up loose ends of 

business for the swiftly-expiring school life again, you might 

see some well-known "wolves," doing a little day-time prowling 
(no names mentioned) . By and by, this aforementioned "spot" is 
but one of many — in fact, these purty, warm days, the whole campus 
is a general meeting place; judging from the looks of things, very 
soon the tennis courts wil again buzz with action. Any day, rain or 
shine, you might see Rufina Balmer and Rinso Marquette, Ruth 
Billow and George Haines, Mary Daugherty and Dan Fraundfelder, 
plus many, many others walking hand-in-hand to and from North 

ondly, its failure is essentially the 
failure of all sporadic attempts to 
eliminate intolerance. An effective 
campaign against intolerance can- 
not be secured by an occasional 
lecture or dramatic example. It has 
to be repetitious; it must be 
pounded into the public subtly and 
unceasingly, and by an agency that 
cannot be accused of partiality to a 
particular minority group. A gov- 
ernmental agency closely allied 
with national educational supervis- 
ion might be a strong stride in this 

What solution did the picture 
suggest? The most concrete solu- 
tion the picture had to offer is that 
each citizen should become a mis- 
sionary of tolerance, a non-con- 
formist at home, work, and play. 
This is theoretically beautiful, but 
despite this plea (and Mr. Emer- 
son's statement that "Whoso would 
be a man must be a non-conform- 
ist") , the "herd instinct" stands as 
a formidable obstacle in the path 
of its success. 

Did Gentleman's Agreement em- 
phasize the most troublesome as- 
pect of intolerance? It seems rath- 
er obvious that a large proportion 
of American Negroes would answer 
in the negative to this question. 
Despite the revolting aspects of an- 
ti-semitism, the Negro problem 
poses a much more explosive situ- 
ation and one that has not, as yet, 
been adequately treated by Holly- 
wood. Quite to the contrary, the 
motion picture industry still insists 
on picturing the Negroes as rather 
ludicrous characters. But, on the 
other hand, a cinematic denuncia- 
tion of racial bigotry would not 
have such tremendous box-office 
appeal in the Southern states. 

By way of summary, then, Gen- 
tleman's Agreement would appear 
to have been acclaimed for calling 
attention to an unpleasant aspect 
of our society, hence, the picture's 
claim to fame seems to lie in its 
appeal to social consciousness, 
which, upon examination, proves to 
be merely an elaboration on the

This summer the national Demo-

will be held in Philadelphia to nom-

delegates to these conventions will 
want to know who the majority of

so that they can choose the strong-

conducted all over the country as 
one way of determining who the 
people want.

Dutchmen Whip Diplomats; 
prop Slugf est to Greyhounds 

Pitching Fails In Moravian Contest; 
Miller Stars As Valley Avenges Defeat 

Combining the outstanding hurling of Charley Miller, a few lusty 
jjits fr° m the bats of Bob Hess, Shorty Fields, Hank DiJohnson, Charley 
Zimmerman, and Jim McGraw, and the ragged defense of the Diplomats' 
jjmer cordon, the Flying Dutchmen waltzed to an easy 11-4 victory over 
franklin and Marshall. Charley Miller held an 11-0 lead going into the 
ninth and did not bear down too 
nard with the result that the 
"DiP s " pushed across four runs in a 
dying cause on Monday. 

Errors committed by the F. & M. 
third-baseman — no less than four 
splayed a large part in the Valley 
Victory, but timely hits were in- 
serted at important spots. Jim Mc- 
Graw lashed a triple in the fourth 
to drive in the first run and scored 
a moment later on Becker's tap to 
shortstop, via the pitcher. Fields 
and Marquette also contributed 
singles during this four -run 
splurge in the fourth. 
" Hess opened the seventh with a 
single to center field. Marquette 
and DiJohnson got on base safely 
on errors by the third - baseman. 
Hess scored and Charley Zimmer- 
man smashed a triple, but was put 
out trying to leg it into a home run. 

Charley Miller pitched great ball 
until the ninth, giving only four 
hits and setting down seven via 
the strike-out route. 

The Dutchmen dropped their 
first game of the season on Satur- 
day as the Moravian Greyhounds 
broke an 8-8 tie in the ninth to 
win 9-8. The manner in which the 
D-men lost the game was incred- 
ible. With two out and the bases 
cramed in the last of the ninth, 
Halkins, the Greyhound third sack- 
er, lifted a towering fly into right 
center which spun off the glove of 
Floyd Becker and fell free to allow 
Moravian to score the winning run. 

The ball-banging of both clubs 
accounted for 39 hits— 17 for the 
Valley and 12 for Moravian. The 
Dutchmen's sticks really sizzled in 
the see-sawing sock fest as Mar* 
quette smashed a homer, Charlie 
Miller, pinch swinging for Walters, 
walloped a triple, and Jim McGraw 
chipped in with a double. Bob 
Hess, Shorty Fields, Chick Zimmer- 
man, and Floyd Becker each got 
two or more hits. 

L. V. put a four-run slug on the 
Greyhounds in the opening stanza 
as Rinso, the slick sticker of the 
Dutchmen, smacked a homer with 
two aboard. Moravian hopped on 
Kinsella to tie it up in the second 
4 -4. They went ahead in the 
f °urth, added one more in the fifth 
and two in the sixth to lead 8-4. 
The D-men, bristling with power, 
ca nie back for one in the seventh 
and three in the eighth to tie the 
5c <*e at 8-8. 

Moravian then tallied in the bot- 
j ^ half of the ninth to win 9-8. 
}jj defeat, three pitchers toiled for 
Valley. Larry Kinsella started, 
was relieved by Walters, and 
re d Ford finished up.

With the Dutchmen 

Knowing full well that three 
games do not make a season, we 
neverthless insist that the Blue 
and White have quite a baseball 
team this spring. 

However, we do concede the fact 
that the pitching staff leaves some- 
thing to be desired. Charley Mil- 
ler is back with all his "stuff" as is 
evidenced by his twirling in the Al- 
bright and F. & M. games. New- 
comer Fred Ford has shown plenty 
and is the one with the most prom- 
ise. Al Mantz is as yet untried this 
year, and will have to acquire con- 
trol to be of any help. Larry Kin- 
sella had something on the ball 
against Moravian, but didn't seem 
to know quite where it was going. 
With a little control he might come 
through. Walters was none too 
impressive in his first appearance, 
but may show more on his next 
jaunt to the mound. Another new- 
comer, Jim Loose, is yet to be test- 

Otherwise the team seems to be 
set with Zimmerman, Marquette, 
Hess, and McGraw comprising the 
infield, Fields, Becker and Ecken- 
roth the outfield, and Hank Di- 
Johnson behind the plate. Replace- 
ments include Penturelli and Bu- 
cher in the infield, and Gage and 
Wally Hess in the outfield. 

There is no telling how many 
games may be played before the 
next issue of this paper, as four 
games are scheduled for next week. 
In the short space allotted we can 
not do justice with regard to com- 
plete sports coverage. 

With no practice to speak of, the 
tennis squad has participated in 
two matches, defeating Moravian 
last Saturday at Bethlehem, 5-2, 
and losing to F. & M. here this 
week by a lopsided 8-1 score. The 
boys deserve a hand, playing with 
only a semblance of practice. Le- 
begern, H. Miller, R. Grimm, and 
Womer, comprise the bulk of the 
squad that is to carry the colors of 
the Valley into 11 scheduled 
matches this spring. An even split 
is not at all impossible. 

Thus, another Axe-League season 
comes to a successful close — suc- 
cessful in that the usual number 
of cuts, bruises, and fights occur- 
red. After absorbing two consecu- 
tive defeats, the Dorm Students will 
definitely be out for revenge come 
next season.

Basehore Leads Day Stud. 
Team to 36-33 Victory 

Hail the champs! For the second 
consecutive year the men's day stu- 
dent champs, the seniors, took the 
measure of the men's dorm stu- 
dent champs, also the seniors, by 
a 36-33 count. 

The finals took place in the Ann- 
ville High School gym, Monday, Ap- 
ril 12. Walt Mahoney was high scor- 
er for the game, netting 13 points, 
but not enough to bring his team 
the victory. Bob Basehore with 1* 
and John Detweiler with 11, points 
led the scoring for the day student 

Comprising the lineup of the day 
students were John Detweiler, Bob 
Early, Bob Basehore, Dennis 
Funck, and John Paul Hummel. 
The vanquished dorm student 
champs, succumbing only after a 
great struggle, were represented by 
Walt Mahoney, Bob Beck, Fritz 
Delduco, Benny Penturelli, Jim Mc- 
Graw, Al Palmieri, and Sam Ruth- 

In the preliminary game the 
Dorm Student all-stars assured 
Dorm basketball fans of at least 
an even break in the night's fes- 
tivities by outpointing the Day Stu- 
dent all-stars by a 45-36 count. 

The Dollars that RUN the Business 

These are the dollars you send to us every time you pay 
your telephone bill. They're the dollars that grow out of 
the nickels that you deposit when you use pay telephones. 
They're the dollars that we take in for providing the best 
possible telephone service at the lowest possible cost. 

These dollars run the telephone business. They pay our 
taxes and our rent and our light and our heat. They pay 
wages and the benefits and pensions telephone employees 
enjoy. They pay interest to bondholders and dividends to 
stockholders for the use of their money. 

Any of these dollars that have nothing to do after paying 
all that they have to pay — and there are never many — are 
put away for a rainy day. 

The Dollars that BUILD the Business 

These are the dollars — saved by school teachers, widows, 
farmers, business men, telephone men and women and other 
everyday people in all walks of life — with which telephone 
securities are bought. 

With these dollars, new central offices are built and 
equipped, other central offices are enlarged, and all tele- 
phone equipment — switchboards, dial mechanisms, wire 
and cable, telephone instruments — are bought. 

These are the dollars that build the business — that 
enable us to meet increasing demands for telephone service 
by expanding our facilities to provide it . . . that enable us 
to make the continual improvements that bring you the best 
possible telephone service at the lowest possible cost. 

We must pay for the use of these dollars. Those who 
supply them expect us to keep them safe and to keep them

Girl Students Are First 
Women In Cell Blocks 

The combined Criminology and 
Social Work classes, under Mr. 
Marvin Wolfgang, enjoyed a high- 
ly interesting field trip April 1. The 
day-long trip included visits to the 
Dauphin Co. Courthouse, where the 
entire group attended several crim-

granted an interview by Judge 
Rupp in the Judge's chambers. 
Judge Rupp is an alumnus of Leb-

Following this, the students were 
conducted on a tour through the 
Dauphin Co. jail by Warden Etter. 

The last point of interest was a 
visit to the Pennsylvania Industrial 
School for Boys at White Hill, 
where these classes were privileged 
to inspect firsthand this modern 
and progressive institution, under 
the able supervision of Rev. Keller. 

White Hill authorities informed 
the group that this was the first

One of the most publicized and eagerly awaited traditions of Leba-

Keech and the invaluable coopera-

college band are producing what 
should be one of the most impres- 
sive May Days at Lebanon Valley. 

The story under the title, "The 
Devil Is An American," is a prod- 
uct of Professor Struble's artistry. 
For his story Professor Struble has 
reached deeply into the pages of 
America's literary history and 
penned a story enriched by classic 
fictional characters. The devil who 
gives the three parts unity will be 
portrayed by Pete Barcia, the cap- 
able comedian, known as L. V.'s Al 

The first episode will find the 
devil in the early New England pe- 
riod where Jim Murray, as Daniel 
Webster, offers to defend Robert 
Meals, as Jabez Stone, who signed a 
contract in blood with the devil. 
The crowing of the cock marks the 
defeated exit of the devil and Ja- 
bez Stone with his charming wife,

Clio And Philo Stage 
Anniversary Dance 
At New Brunswick 

Soft lights, the music of Johnny 
Adams and his orchestra, and a 
scrumptuous turkey dinner all con- 
tributed their share to make a 
most enjoyable evening for the 130 
persons attending the annual Clio- 
Philo Anniversary Dance on Satur- 
day, April 24, at the Hotel New 
Brunswick, in Lancaster, Pa. 

Clio, which was celebrating its 
75th anniversary, had elected Ruth 
Whitman, senior chemistry stu- 
dent, anniversary president. Joyce 
Meadows, president of Clio Society, 
joined Miss Whitman in welcoming 
to the dance fifteen alumnae of the 

Miss Alma Light and Mrs. Lillian 
Shroyer were presented with gifts 
by the anniversary president for 
being the persons present who were 
members of Clio for the longest 
period of time. 

Robert Grover, president of 
Philo, welcomed the alumni of his 
organization to the affair. Robert 
Beck was Philo's Anniversary Pres- 

Two special Dances were held 
during the evening — an elimination 
dance and a spot dance. Bob 
Sheetz and his guest were awarded 
prizes for being the last couple in 
the elimination dance. Henry Di- 
Johnson and Anna Fay Hall 
danced off with the prizes for the 
spot dance. The prizes were pre- 
sented by the Clio Anniversary 
President, Ruth Whitman.

ucts, experimented with Ruth 
Keech and Millie Neff. Different 
types of products for various types 
of skins were exhibted and demon- 
strated by Miss Heffner. 

Immediately following the dem- 
onstration an announcement was 
made concerning the officers for 
next year. They are: Dottie Zink. 
President; Charlotte Rohrbaugh, 
Vice President; Betty Miller, Secre- 
tary; Janet Eppley, Treasurer;

Thursday, May 6, 1948 

LA VIE COLLEGIENNE is published weekly throughout the college year, except 
holiday vacations and examination periods, by the students of Lebanon Valley Col- 
lege, Annville, Pennsylvania. 

LA VIE is a member of the Associated Collegiate Press and the Intercollegiate 
Press. National advertising is secured through the National Advertising Service, Inc.. 
College Publishers Representative, New York, N. Y. 


WE SEEM to recall that the open period at eleven o'clock Thursday 
morning was originally designated as a time for meetings of the 
four classes and the campus organizations. It was, and still is, difficult 
for the clubs and societies to count on holding meetings at night be- 
cause of the difficulty of the day students in coming in the evening, and 
also because of recitals, rehearsals, vespers, and other such obstacles to 
maximum attendance, not to mention school work. This literal gift from 
the administration filled an urgent need, and for a while the system 
worked fairly well. 

Recently, however, it has been infringed upon in several ways. Of 
course, there is always the disinclination of the student to bestir him- 
self to attend the meetings, but he does appear to be able to bestir him- 
self to go to the various forms of entertainment which have been pre- 
sented in Engle Hall during the past few weeks. The administration is 
clearly not to blame for the students' laziness, but it contradicts its 
original purpose in making the period open by scheduling the enter- 
tainment. Another infringement is the holding of classes at this time. 
We concede the practicality of this before vacations, but during the rest 
of the year it is unfair for some to take advantage of this as a means 
for escaping undesirable late -afternoon and Saturday classes while the 
majority cannot do so. If these things interfere, as We think, with the 
workings of the organizatipns, then some correction is indicated. 
Perhaps the period should be abolished. 
Perhaps we need more free periods. 

Perhaps this is a problem for the Student-Faculty Council. 


DURING the academic year which is currently approaching a frenzied 
climax, what with exams and social functions, some changes were 
made that most of us have taken for granted. Many of these changes 
were somewhat intangible, (who could sum up our "school spirit" or the 
lack of it) , but if you are interested in facts and figures, here are a few 
that represent one of the aspects of Lebanon Valley which we usually 
know little about: the cost of capital improvements. 

Following is a partial list of expenditures made by the college (ex- 
cluding current expenses such as salaries and maintenance costs) dur- 
ing this school year: 

Investment in Washington Hall, including foundation and base- 
ment, lab tables, linoleum, lighting, etc $ 20,000 

Equipment for Washington Hall, including microscopes, lab 
equipment, recres-ion hall furniture, classroom furniture, 

office furniture, etc $ 8,000 

Improvement of Conservatory basement $ 10,000 

Fluorescent lighting throughout Administration Building, and 

linoleum in all halls and stairways $ 5,000 

Dormitory and classroom furniture $ 4,000 

Purchase of homes for faculty families $ 17,500 

In addition, there was the cost of redecorating the interior of some 
of the dormitories, new paving for campus walks, resurfacing tennis 
courts, a new roof on South Hall, new stoves in the kitchen, new tractor, 
new mowing units, and weatherstripping of dorms and Administration 

During the summer work will be started on several more projects 
destined to make LVC a better place in which to live and study. Follow- 
ing are a few figures of anticipated expenditures, provided by the 
Treasurer's Office: 

Installation of new boilers and stokers in the heating plant (the 

old ones barely made it this year) $ 28,000 

Purchase and installation of two new organs for the Conserva- 
tory $ 16,000 

Development of the new athletic field where rough grading is 

now in progress $ 40,000 

Purchase of an additional faculty home $ 5,000 

Moreover, there will be general salary increases for the faculty, as 
well as all campus employees, maintenance help, kitchen help, etc. 

All of this should be borne in mind by those of us who are prone to 
forget that materially, at least, Lebanon Valley College is definitely mov- 
ing ahead! 




Be It a Full Course Dinner or Just a Coke 


Curtain Calls 


On April 23 (Shakespeare's birth- 
day, by the way) the Wig and Buc- 
kle Dramatic Club of Lebanon Val- 
ley College presented Eugene O'- 
Neill's comedy, "Ah, Wilderness," in 
Engle Hall. The audience, though 
not a capacity one, was apprecia- 
tive and impressed by the smooth- 
ness of the performance. The 
coaches, Dr. George Struble and 
Mrs. Ralph Mease, deserve great 
praise for the very finished produc- 

"Ah, Wilderness," in contrast 
with O'Neill's more common, un- 
pleasant-ending tragedies, is a pop- 
ular, pleasant, sentimental com- 
edy. It is an agreeable tale of a 
typical American family with 
members and problems enough to 
afford a good acting vehicle. There 
is the wise father, the kindly moth- 
er, the perennially drunk uncle, the 
maiden aunt, the eighteen year old 
son passionately in love with a 
neighbor's daughter, to mention 
only the chief characters. The sit- 
uation is never too bad, and the 
play has great appeal for the aver- 
age audience. 

The chief problem is created 
when the girl friend's father finds 
letters with scraps of verse by 
Swinburne from Richard in his 
daughter's bureau drawer and 
forces her to end the romance. In 
retaliation, Richard visits a bar- 
room, makes the acquaintance of 
a questionable lady, and gets drunk 
— serious business in the eyes of 
the family. But a reconciliation is 
effected by the lovers in a pale blue 
scene amid lots of moonlight and 
poetry, and everything is beautiful 
and romantic in nice contrast with 
the realism which has gone before. 

This contrast of realism and ro- 
manticism is characteristic of O'- 
Neill. There is no antithesis be- 
tween romantic material and real- 
istic treatment, for the latter cor- 
rects and adjusts the former. 

The cast was remarkably well se- 
lected and balanced. Shakespeare 
himself would have been pleased 
with the clarity of enunciation and 
the fine voices, not to mention the 
acting and facility with the lines. 

Nat Miller, the wise but not too 
cultivated father, was played by 
James Murray, most convincingly 
perhaps in the clever- scene in 
which he advises his son about life. 
Jane Reed was a somewhat re- 
strained, graceful Essie, pleasant to 
watch and to hear. Dick, the eight- 
een year old, poetry-quoting son 
(who may be the ghost of O'Neill 
himself at eighteen)', was excel- 
lently interpreted by Ted Keller. 
He quoted Swineburne like a true 
poet, or an ardent teen-ager, and 
was just gauche enough as the un- 
initiated in the barroom scene. 
George Sanborn played the * older 
brother with sophistication; Car- 
mela Yannacci, the young sister, 
with great charm, and Robert Ei- 
genbrode, the kid brother, with the 
proper innocence. Some of the fin- 
est acting of the evening was the 
sympathetic interpretation of Un- 
cle Sid, the perennial drunk, by 
Francis Heckman. (Overheard in 
the rear, "Why is it that L. V. C. 
men do their best acting in these 
roles?") Elaine Heilman reached 
real drama during the dinner 
scene, when, as Lilly, she accused 
the whole family of helping with 
Sid's undoing. Muriel, the girl 
friend, was sweetly and romantic- 
ally portrayed by Ruth Peiffer. 
Good character parts were done by 
Paul Kauffman, as David McComb- 
er, Muriel's infuriated father; Har- 
ry Hoffman, as Wint Selby, the 
roue; Katherine Wersen as Belle, 
the harlot; Dorothea Cohen as 

The Campus Is Talking About • . . 

CLIO-PHILO DINNER-DANCE— A superb dinner, splendid program, ^ 
fine music added up to an unforgettable evening of conviviality aiw 
pleasure — where?— Why, the wonderful dance at Hotel New Brur^ 
wick, which climaxed a successful season of Clio-Philo activities. 
Everyone fortunate enough to have been present thoroughly agrew 
that this affair wil be difficult to surpass on all counts. . . .Amona 
those who so agree were several "surprise" couples, in addition to 
those whose names have been so often linked together, and men 
tioned so frequently in this column as to almost have become p er " 

manent fixtures! These "new-o's" included: Etta Rae Milk* 

and Bob Early, Phyllis Dale and Dale Synder (what, no hills?) 
Vera Boyer, back with Fred Fore; Nancy Meyer so happy to be re 
united with her Russ Gingrich (future Doctor) . Anna Fay Hall ann 
"Hank" DiJohnson smilingly receiving their gifts as "spot dance" 
winners — wonder what he'll do with the little black book? Elimina 
tion dance winners Bob Sheetz and his cute home-town gal. 
Handsome-couple-honors should really go to Anne Louise Hartz arid 
Bill Miller — and, of course, May Queen Mary Jane Eckert and Boh 
Streepy (future Mr. and Mrs.) Nancy Bright and Richard Hart- 
man seemed to have a lot to say to each other! Anniversary Presi. 
dent of Clio, Ruth Ann Whitman, and Philo President, Bob Grover 
can indeed be proud of their efforts to make this an outstanding 
dance. Towering Ray Kline and Tiny Anna Kreider partners for 
one dance. Each came with their usual escorts, however! 

BROWSINGS — Congratulations to the cast and producers of "Ah Wilder- 
ness," also to all the "behind the scene" people who made such a 
successful production possible. 

Engagements announced recently are South Hall's dorm president 
Milie Neff to Business Ad. senior Robert Beck; and quiet Jeanne 
Hisner's to alumni Robert Kern. Best wishes from the column, 

'Twouldn't be a last effort without mentioning Fritz, the Senator 
Delduco. Ask him and he'll tell you he's "out," which means out with 
South Hall gals when translated. Pat Riihilouma remains the regular 1 
with Sazia Mieczkowska as a side, but definite, interest. That's right, 
isn't it, Fritz? 

Under the category of perfect weekends comes Henry Deens' and 
Bob Miller's jaunt to New York City. Do get them to tell you about 
it, and then try and stop 'em! 

The former editors of this paper, Ted Keller and R. Baker, have 
taken to writing stories about— you guessed it — each other, with 
some ex's of theirs thrown in for feminine interest. Nice pastime, 

Must admit that Smitty (John Charles, that is) and Mim Keller 
make a nice looking couple, but who's going to take Prof. Fisher to 
the dances? 

Ever hear of George Alwood? Well, he's the guy who does such a 
swell job on drums, and just to broaden his horizons, he's taken to 
learning about the telephone game a la one of Lebanon's own oper- 

Dave-oo Fleischer couldn't stay away from our campus for long, so 
he returned a few days ago to see if the P-way still served coffee, and 
- to enjoy Harry's other rorms of amusement, or is it amazement? Joe 
Kania dropped by, also, still feeling like the young stallion which he 
is rapidly outgrowing. 

Not mentioned, and yet not forgotten by our reporters, are Charlie 
Tome, faithful LA VIE sports editor, and his Sidney Garverich, 
and outstanding cornetist Ralph Downey and Mary Tillson; Ginny 
Vought and "Sleepy" Widmann. 

Parting time now, all you lovely people — To those who weren't men- 
tioned often through no fault of their own, better luck next semes- 
ter; to the old faithfuls, keep up the good work; you've been good 
copy. Happy Prom-ing— Good luck on the finals, and here's to big- 
ger, and shall I say, better dirt columns. It's been fun, and let's keep 
it gay! 



In answer to your column, "Re- 
flections," of Thursday, April 22, 
1948, I wish to object to the way 
the writer of that column reviewed 
Gentleman's Agreement. 

Apparantly (sic) the writer of 
"Reflections" does not know the 
extent to which the Jewish people 
are being persecuted, here in Am- 
erica, and Abroad. In fact, I would 
go as far as to say that the column 
seemed to have an anti-semitic col- 
or to it. 

My reason for saying this is due 
to the fact that in that article the 
writer tries to bypass the problem 
at hand by bringing to the front 
the problem of the Negro. In doing 
so he stated, "Despite the revolting 
aspects of anti-semitism, the Negro 
problem poses a much more explo- 
sive situation. . . ." . 

True, the problem of the Negro 

Nora, the maid; Albert Moriconi as 
the bartender; and Samuel Ruth- 
erford as the salesman. 

The cast, the club, and the direc- 
tors should feel proud of the pro- 
duction. Encore! 

is great, but it lies in one section 
of our great democratic country, 
namely the South. 

On the other hand, the problem 
of the Jew and anti-semitism *

ular section of one particular coun-

The Moravian College Grey- 
hounds continued to cast their evil 
spell over the Flying Dutchmen 
when they downed the Dutchmen 
2 to score their second victory of 
the season at the expense of the 
Valley. Before a fair crowd of Val- 
ley faithful and beneath cloudy' 
skies, the Greyhounds had one big 
inning, the second, which produced 
runs, to hand L.V. their third 
loss of the season. 

Fred Fore, a big blond freshman 
flinger, pitched 8 hit ball for the 
Valley and but for a combination of 
circumstances would have achieved 
a deserved victory. As it turned out, 
Fred looked as good as a losing- 
pitcher ever looked. He shot strike- 
out bullets at Moravian all after- 
noon and compiled a whiff list of 
eleven strikeouts, getting two each 
in the first, third, fourth, fifth, and 
seventh, and one in the sixth. Of 
the eight hits Fred gave up, five 
of them squeezed through the right 
side as though the balls had eyes. 

Lebanon Valley tallied the firsT 
run of the game in the initial 
frame. Shorty Fields was hit by a 
pitched ball, sacrificed to second by 
Bob Hess, and after Marquette flied 
out to center DiJohnson got the 
only extra base blow of the game 
when he blasted a booming triple 
to deep center to score Fields. 

Moravian quickly went ahead in 
the top of the second as they put 
together 3 singles and an error to 
score 3 runs. With two men on the 
following 2 hits, Roger Doll, Grey- 
hound pitcher, sent a topper to 
short which Hess bobbl'ed and all 
hands were safe. With the sacks 
soaked another roller to short pro- 
duced Moravian's first run. Then 
Stengele lined a single to center to 
irive in two more runs. 

L.V. added another run in the 
fourth when Becker strolled. Walt 
Gage beat out a roller to third and 
?ore bashed a screaming single to 
right to score Becker. Biff Gallo 
continued his sensational pinch- 
hitting when he slapped a sharp 
single through the middle— but 
Gage, rounding third going full 
throttle missed the sack, and was 
called out to end a Valley rally. 

Moravian continued to heed op- 
portunity's sharp knock when they 
scored run number four in the top 
half of the sixth. Following two 
successive ground singles to right; 
Fore did some commendable clutch 
pitching and appeared to pull out 
of the jam. With runners on first 
and third, Fred made the next two 
batters hit into the dirt and had 
two away via outs from short to 
first and pitcher to first. But then 
Lobb stole home to add the fir 
tally on a questionable play. 

The D-men made another bid to 
pull the game out of the fire in the 
home half of the seventh but failed 
to score. Hess sent a sharp single 

through the middle after Gallo had 
flied out to left. Marquette lined 
out to short and DiJohnson came 
through with his second hit, a blaz- 
ing single to right, but the rally 
fizzled when Zimmerman went out, 
pitcher to first. 

Valley 8, Mt. St. Mary's 2 
Making his first start in college 
ball when he scored an 8-2 triumph 
over Mount Saint Mary's, Jim Loose 
turned in some corking chucking to 
register the third win for the Men- 
of-Mease. Loose, a rookie righty 
who fed the MSM batters a mixture 
of fast and slow stuff, was backed 
up by some lusty hitting as the 
Valley pounded out 8 runs after the 
visitors had scored twice in the 

The Valley's big rally came in 
the second when no less than 11 
Dutchmen came to bat. . Becker 
opened with a ground single 
through the middle. Not content 
with that, Floyd stole everything 
but the ball. He swiped second, 
stole third after Gage walked, and 
then stole home. 

Loose helped the cause by bunt- 
ing safely toward third. Shorty 
Fields ^as hit by a pitched ball to 
load the bases, and Bob Hess walk- 
ed to force in the fourth run. Mar 
quette lifted a towering fly to left 
which fell for a single to score 
Loose and Fields. The St. Mary'? 
pitcher couldn't find the plate a 
a basement china counter, and Di 
Johnson walked. This hilarious act 
continued when Hess scored on ; 
wild pitch, but three Valley bats 
men flied out to end the inning. 

Jules Gallo continued to hit in 
grand fashion. Coming in as a 
pinch hitter for Fields in the bot- 
tom of the third, Biff banged a 
double to left center to drive in the 
Valley's final run. Next time up he 
singled sharply down the left line, 
and completed a perfect day wher 
he beat out a hit to deep short his 
last time at bat. 

graduates this summer. While in 
high school Freddy was a member 
of the baseball, basketball, track, 
and soccer teams. Fred spent last 
year at Kutztown and the Harris- 
burg Area College. He has been 
tantalizing opposing batters all 
year with his drops, curves, and 
knuckle balls, but has been pitch- 
ing in just about the toughest luck 
possible. In 23 innings he has given 
up just one earned run and yet has 
been charged with 3 losses against 
victories. Fred is leading the 
Dutchmen twirlers in strikeouts 
with 21 in 23 innings, while Char- 
ley Miller has 20 in 35 innings. Fred 
has allowed only 15 hits and 6 bas- 
es on balls in those 23 innings, 
which isn't bad pitching in any 
man's league. 

Saturday's game with Albright 
should be a thriller, and with 
Charley Miller on the mound the 
Valley's chances for victory look 
very good. At least, we think so. 

The Valley tennis squad has yet 
to hit its stride, losing 6 out of 7 
matches. With only 4 matches re- 
maining on the docket, the best 
our boys can do is pull up to a re- 
spectable 5 and 6 record for the 

season. Howard Lebegern and 
Henry Miller have been the most 
consistent winners for the Valley. 
A victory over the Lions this Sat- 
urday would atone for several de- 

With this issue we take leave of 
you till next fall. Let's root our Fly- 
ing Dutchmen on to victory in the 
final ball games and tennis matches 
this spring, and come back refresh- 
ed in the fall, ready to cheer Andy 
Kerr, and an almost completely re- 
turning football squad on to a suc- 
cessful gridiron season. 
Good luck, Ralph and Andy.

With the Dutchmen 

Our Dutchmen have been able to 
play only eight of their ten sched- 
uled games up to this point, and 
leaving them at this point, we can- 
not draw a true balance sheet of 
their accomplishments. 

At this point their record stands 
at 5 wins and 3 losses, or a .625 per- 
centage, good in anybody's league. 
Two of those games have been 
dropped by 2 runs and the other 
by a single tally. The Dutchmen 
show plenty of that old spirit out 
there on the field and are well 
worth watching. It appears that 
the scheduled Juniata games have 
been washed from the books 
Should no more rain be forthcom- 
ing, the Blue and White will close 
out their season with a total of 14 
games played. We see victory ahead 
in all but the Lafayette game. That 
would give them a season's record 
of 10 wins and 4 losses. This is al- 
together possible in view of the im 
proved pitching which Coach 
Ralph Mease has been getting late 
ly. Just when Coach Mease thought 
all he had to count on were Miller 
and Fore, young Jim Loose came 
through with a well-pitched game 
against Mt. St. Mary's, winning 8-2, 
and big Marsh Gemberling showed 
his arm and said he was ready for 
duty. He was scheduled to go 
against Kutztown on Tuesday of 
this week. 

Outstanding among Valley base- 
ball newcomers this year is Freddy 
Fore, 5' 11' tall, 22 years old, ex- 
McConnellsburg High School ath 
lete, who has become quite a pitch 
er. Fred is a sophomore and will 
probably take over the No. 1 pitch- 
ing slot next year as Charley Miller
